Dr. Sara Hartsaw was born in the small town of Chappell, Nebraska. Even
as a child the practice of medicine fascinated her, and she knew from
a very young age she would one day be a doctor. Growing up in Cheyenne,
Wyoming, new doors opened for Dr. Hartsaw to chase her dream of one day
entering the medical profession. Graduating from East High School in Cheyenne,
she made her way to the top becoming a Fellow of The
American College of Surgeons in 1992, and the Governor representing Wyoming for six years. This is
considered to be the premier surgical association worldwide.
Taking her desire to a new level, Dr. Hartsaw joined the
United States Navy Reserve in 2013 where she now holds the honorable title of Commander. Along with
new experiences and challenges, this opportunity has also taken Dr. Hartsaw
into the heart of Afghanistan. She notes that she was 'not too busy'
while deployed, which is certainly better than our troops needing her services.
In addition to her title of “doctor”, she also holds the title
of “mom". Dr. Hartsaw is the mother of five children, the youngest
is currently attending high school locally in Gillette.
Driven by discipline and grit, Dr. Hartsaw continues to strive to be the
best surgeon she can be not only for herself but also for the patients
she serves daily in our community. The medical field has given Dr. Hartsaw
the honor of interacting with surgeons from across the country, thus introducing
her to better, faster, and more efficient ways to succeed in her surgical
techniques and therapies.
However, it’s Gillette that has given Dr. Hartsaw the home base she
has always dreamed of. She continues to dedicate her life to grow with
the latest developments and treatments. It also provides the opportunity
to serve both neighbors and friends, and strengthen the bond between community
members, and the certified professionals they put trust in daily.
