After receiving his undergraduate degree he spent a year performing pharmacology research at Kansas University Medical Center before moving to Cleveland, Ohio to attend Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. Upon graduation, Dr. Wityk was accepted into a rigorous three-year surgical residency program at John Peter Smith Hospital, a Level 1 trauma center and county hospital in Fort Worth, where he served as Chief Resident of the Foot and Ankle division in the Department of Orthopedics.
