No. 10 Breast Cancer Surgery

JANE L. KAKKIS, MD

Accomplished physician. Gifted artist. Compassionate patient advocate. As an oncoplastic surgeon, Kakkis helps women put their bodies – and their lives – back together. In a field where fear runs rampant, Dr. Kakkis offers hope and healing to women who value her ability to remove cancer and restore beauty to the breast, with minimal visible evidence. Named a “Best Doctor in America,” for the past 10 years, she was one of OC’s first surgeons to promote localized radiation therapy, breast MRI and customized screening for dense breast patients. Dr. Kakkis finds inspiration from a famous Buddhist saying, “A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

When not in scrubs, this busy mom and community volunteer can be found mentoring her daughter’s Girl Scout troop, playing volleyball or serving as a camp volunteer for kids with cancer.

It’s been said that your purpose in life is to find your purpose and give your whole heart and soul to it. By all accounts, Dr. Jane Kakkis has done just that.
