Here we examine the data supporting current treatment strategies, including multimodality paradigms that integrate radiation and chemotherapy. We will also examine ongoing genomic and molecular studies elucidating novel methods for treating the diseases and results of clinical trials aimed at translating these findings into clinical practice.

Wittig for the first time. This was an extremely stressful time for me since I had received several reports regarding my cancer diagnosis. Upon meeting Dr, Wittig I immediately knew I was in good hands. His support staff of nurses, is top notch. Their attention to detail, answering questions we may have, are always done in a timely manner.
Without the ease of working with Dr. James Wittig, I can tell you. I would not feel as confident with my situation as I do. He is truly a very special human being.
