Date:5/21/2013

Hackensack, NJ (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Dr. James C. Wittig, Chief of Orthopedic Oncology (Pediatric and Adult) and Director of the Sarcoma Division of the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey has been named one of the top 13 Orthopedic Oncologists in the United States by Orthopedics This Week. Dr. Wittig is one of approximately 125 surgeons in America who specialize in Orthopedic Oncology. The list was created by surveying thought leaders in the field of Oncology. Dr. Wittig’s continuous recognition validates his compassion and ongoing commitment to treating musculoskeletal cancers with the most innovative advances.

“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.

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.
