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."
