Dr. Nitka performs all types of orthopedic surgery, but has a special emphasis on spinal disorders. He completed a fellowship at the Texas Institute for Spinal Disorders and is the co-author of a chapter in a book on spinal disorders.
Trained in the latest minimally invasive surgery techniques, he performs miscrodiscectomy, anterior cervical spine surgery, lumbar fusion, peripheral nerve decompression for wrist and elbow, and general orthopedic surgery.
“My best joy is seeing a patient return to his or her normal lifestyle and have improved daily function,” he says.
Dr. Nitka and his wife, Melanie, have a son, Caleb. In his spare time, Dr. Nitka enjoys playing golf and fishing. His hobbies include repair and restoration of watches and clocks.
