Meet Dr. David C. DeWitt

Dr. David DeWitt is a board certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon in Appleton, Wisconsin. Dr. DeWitt's areas of interest are cervical disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, motion preservation surgery (artificial disc replacement,) lumbar disc herniation, spondylolithesis, trauma and tumor reconstructive surgery.

Dr. DeWitt performs the highest volume of Anterior Lumbar Fusions cases in the state per year. Utilizing an anterior approach provides more stability for the spine and is less invasive, but is less commonly performed since it is a more difficult approach. Most spine surgeons have done few cases using an anterior approach and many don’t attempt this approach at all.

Dr. DeWitt understands the necessity for patients who have been recommended surgery to understand their options and the entirety of the procedures presented to them, as well as what to expect after surgery. He understands that a full comprehension of risks and benefits needs to be considered before making an important decision about their backs. His neutral opinion and dedication to educating patients - along with his expertise and multidisciplinary team approach - ensures his patients have the best outcomes and quickest recovery times.
