His interest in cancer treatment began in the 1980s with work at the National Cancer Institute and continued through his years on the clinical faculty of Stanford Medical Center and the Johns Hopkins University Department of Urology. Dr. Dietrick performed the first da Vinci robotic prostatectomy at a community hospital in Maryland in 2005 and has performed approximately 1,000 successful operations since then, more than any other community urologist in Maryland.  Dr. Dietrick performed traditional open prostatectomies for 15 years prior to this.

In 2010, he was inducted into The Healing Hands Guild of the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center. The Guild honors physicians who excel in their clinical skills and demonstrate an unwavering commitment to excellent and compassionate care.  Dr. Dietrick has also been selected as a Super Doctor in The Washington Post magazine in 2011, 2012 and 2013.

He was named the Chief Value Officer at Chesapeake Urology in 2016, a newly created senior position that is unique among urology groups in the nation.  In this position, he will work to develop policies and procedures that produce high quality, cost effective, medical care with measurable outcomes.
