FACES of Orange County 2019

Jane L. Kakkis, MD


Healing Bodies and Restoring Lives

Consistently named a “Best Doctor in America” for over a decade, 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 camouflage scars is a testament to her desire to help women heal physically and emotionally. An international lecturer on the topic of breast cancer treatment, Kakkis spearheaded a pre-habilitation program to help women successfully navigate the maze of chemotherapy, surgery and radiation treatments. She also 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. “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.”
