Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute announced the appointment of Ed Sauter, MD, PhD, as Director of the Breast Surgery Program at the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute (HHCCI). He will lead the breast surgery programs at each of the Institute’s five cancer centers.
Dr. Sauter is joining the Hartford HealthCare Cancer Institute after serving as Director of the Cancer Treatment and Prevention Center at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, where he built a reputation as a surgeon, scientist, medical educator, and physician administrator. He has been practicing in the field of breast surgery for more than 25 year.
“I am extremely excited about this opportunity to work at Hartford HealthCare, which is moving in a very impressive direction with its cancer program both within the Institute framework and through its collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering,” said Dr. Sauter. HHCCI became the charter member of the Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Alliance in 2013, making it possible for patients at each of the cancer centers within the Institute to have access to research, clinical trials, and protocols at MSK. ■
