FACES of Orange County 2018

JANE L. KAKKIS, MD – MEMORIALCARE BREAST CENTER

The Face Of Breast Cancer Surgery

As an international lecturer on the topic of breast cancer treatment, Dr. Jane Kakkis is admired by patients and peers alike. With an innate artistic eye, Kakkis employs advanced surgical techniques to remove all traces of cancer while restoring health, symmetry and beauty to the breast. Her unique ability to camoufl age scars is a testament to her desire to help women heal physically and emotionally from the ravages of breast cancer. Consistently named a “Best Doctor in America” for over a decade, Kakkis spearheaded a prehabilitation program to help women successfully navigate the maze of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation treatments. In addition, she pioneered a survivorship program that addresses the physical and emotional changes cancer patients experience in their journey toward recovery.

Passionate about fitness, nutrition and wellness, Kakkis serves as a life coach who educates on the role genetics, nutrition, fitness, and balance play in overall healing. A working mom who wears many hats, Kakkis loves partnering with her daughter in community service pursuits such as the National Charity League, and was recently honored by Girl Scouts of OC for her “leading by example” model of what it means to be a G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™. Kakkis notes, “There’s a Buddhist saying that sums up my approach to life — A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity. That philosophy is a driving force for me in all of my professional and personal pursuits.”
