Dr. Erik Dunki-Jacobs, MD
As a fellowship trained Surgical Oncologist, I use advanced surgical techniques to treat patients with the diagnosis of cancer. My goal as a TriHealth physician is to allow cancer patients in the Greater Cincinnati area the opportunity to receive state-of-the-art cancer surgical care right in the city with which they live. When possible, I try to use minimally invasive or robotic surgery to remove the tumor. This allows patients to recover faster so that they can get any additional treatment they might need, such as chemotherapy or radiation, as soon as possible. As part of the TriHealth Cancer Institute, I work with a team of providers such as Medical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Genetic Councilors, Behavioral Oncologists, Nutritionists, Physical Therapists, Social Workers and Nurse Navigators. Together, we work to give each patient the best possible outcome.

Dr. Dunki-Jacobs Says:

As a physician in a very small field, I understand that it can be difficult as a patient to know your physician is an expert in his or her field.  One of the best ways to know you are being cared for by a reputable physician is to hear good feedback from patients whom he or she has cared for in the past.  I welcome and appreciate all patient feedback so that others can make an informed...

Patient Comments (3)
in Fairfield Ohio |
Cancer is such a horrible word which elicits fear, uncertainty and a feeling of helplessness. Dr. DJ was informative, patient and showed such empathy for my family and myself. He and his staff were concerned about all of us. My Husband and adult children shared my fears and they understood this. I was treated as a whole person not just an illness. I was blessed to have found him and would willingly recommend him.
in Cincinnati, OH |
Very good experience. Performed colon cancer surgery and ostomy reversal on me. Very caring and thoughtful. Basically saved my life.
in Rising Sun, Indiana |
Dr Dunki-Jacobs is the BEST surgeon in his field in all of the greater Cincinnati area and beyond. I would travel to Cincinnati to be able to see him. He shows that he cares about his patients and is very professional. Within 2 weeks of my surgery I was feeling great. Had to remind myself what I could or couldn't do. He is calm and wants to reassure his patients. I would recommend anyone who needs surgery that falls into his specialty area. He is simply the best.

As a fellow at the University of Louisville, I was dual accredited in both surgical oncology as well as hepatic-pancreatico-biliary surgery.  U of L is the only program in the country to provide dual accreditation.

Dr. Dunki-Jacobs says...

Many of the procedures that I perform are done using minimally invasive or robotic techniques, including pancreas and liver resections.
