Patients and physicians alike place their trust in Dr. Matthew Zornitzer. As the go-to hand expert at the Center for Orthopaedics in West
Orange, this board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon provides care for all aspects of the hand and upper extremity, with particular subspecialty expertise in complex distal radius (wrist) fractures and ligament injuries. He also treats nerve compression and tendonitis of the upper extremity.
Utilizing cutting-edge approaches, Dr. Zornitzer performs minimally invasive procedures, such as small joint arthroscopy to treat arthritis
and Xiaflex® injections for effective treatment of Dupuytren’s disease. These techniques allow for improved outcomes with rapid healing
time and minimal scarring.
A longtime Livingston resident in practice since 2005, Dr. Zornitzer takes pride in his growing referral base of patients, families, and
physicians with whom he has enduring relationships. “Caring for former teachers, current student athletes and parents of my friends is very
gratifying,” he says. “It’s humbling to have their confidence.” Dr. Zornitzer credits his outstanding colleagues and acknowledges his peers
for nominating him again as a New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor. His patient-centered focus has also earned him Nurses’ Choice recognition in
a survey commissioned by the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute.
