Dietrich is board certified in both obstetrics and gynecology and in the subspecialty of gynecologic oncology. He joined the UK Markey Cancer Center Division of Gynecologic Oncology after retiring as a colonel from the U.S. Army. During his military career, he served as a general surgeon during Operation Iraqi Freedom and as a battalion surgeon during Operation New Dawn.

He is active in the Society of Gynecologic Oncology and is a board examiner for the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Personal Statement

I have been a practicing gynecologic oncologist since 2006, and I am thrilled to be back at the University of Kentucky. I was drawn to gynecologic oncology because it allows for a highly personalized approach – one physician directs both the surgical and medical aspects of cancer treatment while working with a multidisciplinary team. When patients come to see me, my goal is to partner with them as we navigate through treatment options and to provide state-of-the-art cancer care.

      Dr Dietrich is always very patient and listens. I had a list of concerns and he took his time and addressed every one of them. For some he didn't have answers and I appreciated his candor. He didn't male anything up, just said he'd get back with me and let me know.
