For Catherine Markle Porter, DO, coming to The Chester County Hospital means coming home. Dr. Porter was born at and later served as a candy striper for the same hospital that she now returns to as a Fellowship Trained Breast Surgeon.

This local talent attended St. Agnes School and Henderson High School before studying at Delaware County Community College and completing her undergraduate degree in microbiology at Humboldt State University in California.

Dr. Porter returned to the area to attend the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, interned at Christiana Hospital in Delaware and completed her surgical residency at Cooper Medical Center in Camden, New Jersey. She then earned a surgical fellowship in Breast Oncology at Stanford University in California, where she received specialty training in treating breast cancer and high risk populations.

Dr. Porter has also served her country as a member of the AmeriCorps, where she was stationed in Denver. She has a husband and two young children and is happy to have returned to the West Chester area to become a part of The Women's Specialty Center.
