Date:2/18/2011

Hackensack, NJ (Feb 18, 2011) James C. Wittig, M.D., chief of the division of skin and sarcoma cancer at the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center will present eleven different educational videos on innovative approaches to orthopedic oncology at the upcoming American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Conference. Dr. Wittig is known for inventing some of the most-used best practices in limb-sparing surgery. In 2009, he and his colleagues began filming their surgeries so that other surgeons across the globe could use their radically innovative techniques.

"We have spent years developing some of the best practices in limb-sparing surgery, and sharing this knowledge is going to benefit patients worldwide," said Dr. Wittig. "Conference attendees represent some of the finest minds in orthopedics today, so to be chosen to lead such a great number of presentations is an honor and speaks to the importance of limb sparing surgery and its significance to the field."

The videos range in content from radical resection and reconstruction of a distal femur tumor to a radical sacrectomy and reconstruction for a high-grade primary sarcoma of the sacrum. All of the educational videos describe various orthopedic oncology procedures pertaining to radical limb sparing surgery and reconstruction for bone and soft tissue tumors in different locations, representing state-of-the-art approaches to these surgeries.

"The physicians and staff of the John Theurer Cancer Center are focused on delivering extraordinary care," said Andrew Pecora M.D., F.A.C.P., C.P.E., chief innovations officer and professor and vice president of cancer services, John Theurer Cancer Center. "The multimedia presentations by Dr. Wittig and his team exemplify this approach from both a patient care and an educational perspective"

The conference is held in San Diego, California from February 15-19 featuring international experts in orthopedics as w
