Hartford Financial CEO's brain tumor surgery successful

* Says post-surgical test confirms tumor was completely removed

* CEO McGee to continue low-dose chemotherapy and radiation treatment

Jan 11 (Reuters) - Hartford Financial Services Group Inc said Chief Executive Liam McGee underwent a successful brain surgery to remove a small tumor.

McGee, 57, had displayed no symptoms previously, and post-surgical tests indicated that he was cancer-free, the insurance company said in a statement.

“In an abundance of caution, the doctors and I have agreed on a low-dose chemotherapy and radiation treatment and we expect minimal side effects,” McGee said in a statement.

The company declined to provide additional details on the surgery.

McGee, who was working from home, will return to office on Monday.

Shares of the company closed at $23.90 on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday.
