Anne Peled, MD is a breast surgeon and plastic surgeon based in San Francisco. She is the co-director of the Breast Care Center of Excellence at Sutter Health California Pacific Medical Center. She is especially known for pioneering an entirely new way of treating breast cancer with a combined mastectomy and reconstruction technique that preserves the nipple, the skin, and the sensation, with manageable recovery and hospital time. Her inspiration was when she herself faced a multitude of decisions when she was diagnosed and there was no such option available at the time. She shares that having this unique perspective of both the medical expert and the patient expert has only strengthened her resolve for women to come out of her care feeling stronger than they ever have been.
