You could make your program do this. This is the long, but easy way:

- Open the PDF file
- Copy the text in it
- Open Microsoft Word
- Paste the text in it
- Save it

you can't convert pdf to word using iTextSharp you can use third party tool which directly write the word document with DataTable and other customize input.
