James C. Wittig, MD, Orthopedic Oncologist and Sarcoma Surgeon, has been appointed Chairman of Orthopedic Surgery at Morristown Medical Center and system-wide medical director of Orthopedic Oncology at Atlantic Health System, commencing August 1, 2018.   Dr. Wittig will be responsible for ensuring outstanding quality, academic excellence, and optimal operational performance across Atlantic Health System’s six hospitals.       
                            
As a leader in the field of Orthopedic Oncology, it is with great anticipation that Dr. Wittig can fulfill his life’s work within an incredible department composed of world-class, top-notch orthopedic surgeons.  “I am filled with gratitude by the opportunity to serve at this capacity and to lead an incredible department within this premier institution.”

The difficulties of orthopedic oncology treatments are lessened by the advances that Dr. Wittig has achieved in his 15+ 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, “and, now, the opportunity to lead an incredible team of world-class orthopedic surgeons at the only New Jersey hospital to be rated as one of the nation’s top 50 Best Hospitals is humbling.  The orthopedic surgery department, and hospital system as a whole, not  only shares the same commitment and personal devotion to orthopedics as myself, but strives to maintain the highest standards of care to each and every patient.  Our mission as doctors is truly sustainable at Morristown Medical Center.” 

In addition to overseeing the Orthopedics Department, Dr. Wittig will continue to maintain a busy clinical practice for adults and pediatrics. He will be joined by Dr. Jay Patel for a two year fellowship in Orthopedic Oncology.
