Current estimates place the number of migraine sufferers in the United States at over 28 million! Sadly, this number does not take into account those who suffer from other types of headaches such as cluster headaches and tension headaches. Recently, an outpatient procedure has been described which has been shown in numerous patients to significantly reduce the frequency, severity and/or duration of migraine headaches and in some cases, to eliminate them permanently.Read More
Conventional wisdom states that peripheral neuropathy is progressive and irreversible. However, this dictum may not always be true. In many cases, the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy may be due in part to a pinched nerve in the leg, foot, arm, forearm or hand. If you or one of those patients, then an outpatient surgical procedure to "un-pinch" those nerves may be effective in reducing or even eliminating the pain, tingling and numbness often associated with neuropathy secondary to diabetes, hypothyroidism, exposure to chemotherapy and other conditions.Read More
There are literally millions of surgical procedures performed in the United States each year and while most of them are successful, there is a small, but significant number of patients who end up with debilitating pain. Similar symptoms can also result from accidents such as falls, motor vehicle crashes, firearm injuries and sports-related injuries. Luckily, many of these cases are attributable to injury of one or more peripheral nerves often be treated with a significant reduction in pain.Read More
My name is Dr. Ziv Peled. Welcome to the home page for my practice, Peled Nerve Surgery. I live in San Francisco, CA and work as an Plastic Surgeon at Peled Nerve Surgery.
Given my passion for peripheral nerve surgery, I expanded my practice to include chronic headache patients, many of whom suffer from nerve compression very similar to that which I have been treating for several years. I now have several hundred peripheral nerve operations under my belt. My results with chronic headaches have mirrored those which I have seen with my other nerve patients and have validated my career decision. I genuinely feel that I make positive and substantive changes in peoples lives on a daily basis and this feeling is the reason I became a physician in the first place. My nerve patients are consistently amongst my most grateful and the satisfaction which comes from their improvement is impossible to put into words. I truly hope that other physicians feel as I do almost every day and hope to be able to continue this work with you and many other patients for years to come. Please, contact us today to make an appointment in our San Francisco or Walnut Creek locations.
