New York, NY (PRWEB) July 10, 2013 -- Dr. James C. Wittig, Associate Professor of Orthopedic Surgery, Chief of Pediatric and Adult Orthopedic Oncology and the Sarcoma Program at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City and Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey has been named one of the top Orthopedic Surgeons in the United States by New York Magazine. In the realm of quantification, Dr. Wittig not only meets the criteria for his accolades wholeheartedly but surpasses each with his ‘undeniable compassion,’ his direct doctor-patient relationships and an ongoing commitment to treating musculoskeletal cancers with the most innovative advances.
The fine-tuned listing of Best Doctors in New York Magazine provides patients with an opportunity to utilize this guide as the resource for the specialty they require. For many current and past patients, finding Dr. Wittig proved to be a positive beginning of an uncertain journey but one guided by a true leader in his field. As one of approximately 125 surgeons in America who specialize in Orthopedic Oncology, he is also one of 145 physicians from The Mount Sinai Medical Center named to the “Best Doctors” list.
“Dr. Wittig is a sought-after specialist who is known for achieving much in the area of limb-sparing surgery. He is a real talent, and is extremely dedicated to his patients,” said one of Dr. Wittig’s peers in Orthopedics This Week where Dr. Wittig was selected as one of the Top 13 Orthopedic Oncologists in the United States.
The difficulties of Orthopedic oncology treatments are lessened by the advances that Dr. Wittig has achieved in his 12+ years handling an array of cases from the straightforward to the most complex ones in nature. "Although most would agree that oncology cases are the toughest, I am truly challenged by each and every diagnosis, confronting them with a customized plan as individual as each patient," notes Dr. Wittig, "leading a team that shares my commitment and personal devotion to provide an environment that fosters a continuum of extraordinary, multidisciplinary care makes the rewards of our work outstanding.”
In addition, the recent book co-authored by Dr. Wittig entitled, Operative Techniques in Orthopedic Surgical Oncology, has become invaluable in the field and is the ‘one and only’ in-depth guide to Orthopedic Oncology available today.
