ESSO pays tribute to Dr. Dhairyasheel Savant



With a heavy heart we have learned that Dr. Dhairyasheel Savant, past President of the Indian Society of Surgical Oncology (IASO) is no longer with us. He passed away on 24th November 2021.

IASO and ESSO share a long and fruitful partnership. It is with deep grief that we now say good-bye to our dear colleague.

Dr. Dhairyasheel Savant was an alumnus of Tata Memorial Hospital in Mumbai - a premier Cancer Center of excellence in India.

He was the President of IASO in 2019, and served IASO in different capacities in the Executive Council during his career.

He was a great academician, a dynamic surgeon and a respected leader in Surgical Oncology.

He was passionate about his profession, and fully devoted his life to the development and promotion of Surgical Oncology at both national and international levels. He was instrumental in developing global relationships between IASO and ESSO.

Dr. Dhairyasheel Savant had a charming personality. He was loved by his family, friends, patients, and colleagues. His loss has left a huge void not only in IASO, but in all of us who had the chance to know him. Our sincere condolences to Dr. Dhairyasheel Savant’s family and IASO members.
