Philanthropy is a cornerstone of Dr. Jacono’s practice. He is the Senior Advisor of the “FACE TO FACE” Committee for the AAFPRS. “FACE TO FACE” is a national project offering pro bono consultation and surgery to victims of domestic violence. Dr. Jacono’s commitment to the cause goes well beyond the operating room. For the past nine years, he has chaired ABOUT FACE: MAKING CHANGES – an annual benefit for survivors of domestic violence.

Dr. Jacono is also a volunteer surgeon for “BEYOND OUR BORDERS,” an organization that brings underprivileged children from third world countries to the United States for surgery to repair disfigurement due to cancer, trauma, and birth defects. He also serves as a volunteer for “HEALING THE CHILDREN,” which helps children throughout the world receive surgeries unavailable to them due to a lack of medical and financial resources. His most recent mission took him to Colombia, where he performed operations on children with cleft lips and cleft palates.

Dr. Jacono’s continued dedication to pro bono surgery inspired the Discovery Fit & Health Network’s reality show Facing Trauma (also on Oprah Winfrey Network) which follows Dr. Jacono and his team as they work to heal both the internal and external scars of victims. Part case study, part survival journey, Facing Trauma chronicles the harrowing stories of women who have been left disfigured from violent circumstances, as they struggle to reconstruct their lives both physically and emotionally.
