“We all worry about being crazy patients, but the reality is that if you’re actually concerned that something is wrong, telling your provider and asking what it would look like to find out what’s going on is important. It doesn’t make you crazy, it just makes you a person advocating for yourself and where you are.” –Dr. Anne Peled


I am so grateful to Dr. Anne Peled for coming on the show to share her story and expertise on breast cancer. She explains how to do a self-exam at home, tells us the warning signs to be aware of, shares what we can do to reduce our risk of breast cancer, and so much more.

Dr. Peled is a breast cancer survivor AND is pioneering an entirely new way of treating breast cancer with a combined mastectomy and reconstruction technique that preserves the nipple, skin, and sensation.

I hope you learn something from what Dr. Peled shares in this conversation. I know I did!

Connect with Dr. Anne Peled:

Dr. Anne Peled is a Breast Cancer and Plastic Surgeon, Pioneer of Sensation-Preserving Mastectomies and is a Co-Director at Sutter Health Breast Cancer Center of Excellence.

With her husband, Dr. Ziv Peled, also a board-certified plastic surgeon, she is currently 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. She started researching this method of surgery when she herself was faced with the decision about what treatment to have for breast cancer, and there was no option like this available to her at that time. Her goal is, and always has been, for women to come out of her care feeling stronger than they ever have been, and it is this holistic approach to healthcare that is the underpinning to her practice and her teaching.
