Revolutionizing Breast Cancer Surgery: The Sensation-Preserving Mastectomy

with podcast guest

Dr. Anne Peled


Dr. Anne Peled is an internationally renowned breast cancer and plastic surgeon based in San Francisco and a true pioneer in breast cancer surgery. Dr. Peled’s journey is one of resilience and dedication, having overcome breast cancer herself and then dedicating her career to empowering others facing this challenging diagnosis. She has extensive research experience focused on improving outcomes after breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction. She is currently involved in research looking at novel approaches to optimize patient satisfaction and quality of life after breast surgery. Dr. Peled and her husband, Dr. Ziv Peled, have also pioneered a surgical technique to allow people to preserve breast sensation following mastectomy.

In this episode, we talk about her experience with breast cancer, her innovative nipple, and sensation-preserving mastectomy technique, breast cancer treatment options, advancements in the field, the importance of early detection and treatment, the drawbacks of traditional mastectomies, breast reconstruction options, the importance of genetic testing, and so much more!
