Orthopedic surgeon Owen DeWitt, M.D., has joined the Alta Vista Regional Hospital staff and the community. DeWitt is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with 24 years of experience. DeWitt utilizes both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat bone, muscle, tendon and joint injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
DeWitt is no stranger to New Mexico. As a teenager he worked on a ranch outside of Tucumcari and from there his love for New Mexico grew.
“We are pleased that we’re able to expand our orthopedic services to meet the needs of our community,” says Maridel Acosta, chief executive officer at Alta Vista Regional Hospital. “Dr. DeWitt is a talented, experienced physician.”
DeWitt earned his medical degree at the University of Texas Medical School in Galveston, and performed an orthopedic residency at Fort Worth Affiliated Hospitals in Fort Worth.
“I am excited to be part of this community,” says DeWitt. “I look forward to developing the orthopedic program in northeastern New Mexico, where treatment is provided with care and compassion for our patients.”
DeWitt is accepting new patients at Alta Vista Orthopedic Specialists, located at 108 Legion Drive, Suite C in Las Vegas. To schedule an appointment, call 426-8010.
