Bio

Jane Porretta, M.D. is a board certified general surgeon specializing in breast surgery. She received her medical degree from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI and surgical training at the University of Utah School of Medicine. She is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is an active member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

Dr. Porretta's focus is on the surgical treatment and diagnosis of breast cancer. She served as medical director of a community breast center before joining the Huntsman Cancer Institute breast cancer team. She practices techniques in breast cancer surgery for improved cosmetic outcomes including oncoplastic procedures in breast conservation and nipple and skin sparing mastectomies. She has additional training and certification in breast ultrasound and uses this in the clinic and operating room for diagnostic assistance and improved tumor localization. She routinely uses genetic testing in her practice and has been a proponent of genomic tumor profiling to guide more personalized breast cancer treatment.

Though Dr. Porretta has a special interest in breast surgery, she has extensive experience in general surgery practice. She has been operating for over 20 years performing laparoscopic and open surgical procedures including gallbladder surgery, hernia repair, hemorrhoid surgery, abdominal and intestinal procedures, and lymph node surgery.

In her free time, Dr. Porretta enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She takes full advantage of what Utah has to offer by skiing in the winter and hiking, cycling and boating in the summer.

"As a physician, I strive to give outstanding service to my patients. I focus on quality medical care and excellent surgical technique. It is very important to me that my patients feel comfortable with my care and the treatment plan and I will take extra time to ensure that questions and concerns are addressed."

Dr. Porretta stands out as an excellent provider at HCI- she is approachable, communicates clearly, always follows-up with a personal phone call when appropriate, is willing to discuss options and allows patient input without being defensive. She seems to understand cancer patients don't want to be there. We have to be there. We are the ones who are sick. We are the ones who are hurting. She does not get indignant or offended when I don't immediately accept her advice. Huntsman is lucky to have her.

May 23, 2015

I really appreciate Dr Porretta's calm and caring demeanor.

May 01, 2015

Doctor Porretta is a wonderful, caring doctor and I have full confidence in her. I ahve not met a doctor I would trust more.

May 01, 2015

Dr Porretta was very thorough in her explanations and information she gave. She was very kind and seemed like a caring person, I felt very comfortable with her. She had a way of speaking that made me feel calm. My husband and I had a lot of questions before the appointment but we didn't have to ask hardly any of them, because she had answered them already. When we left, we only talked about one question we didn't have an answer to, and that is because we didn't ask.

April 29, 2015

Excellent care provider. She was knowledgeable about the reason for consultation and was able to explain clearly the management plan.

April 15, 2015

Professional, but understanding of my concerns. Spoke with us on a level that we could understand without making us feel uncomfortable. Spent quite a bit of time discussing my health problem. Added for additional testing to cover all bases. She has such a quite voice, which I find quite calming

I saw Dr. Porretta, and she was absolutely fantastic! I'm a dentist and I needed Dr. Porretta not to speak to me as a lay person, but as a medical colleague, which she did. I've spoken to her again by phone on a follow up after they discussed my case in Tumor Board. I have complete confidence in my treatment plan now, and I so appreciate the time that everyone has spent discussing options to help treat me the best way.
