Ziv M. Peled, MD* is a Board-Certified plastic surgeon trained to perform the full spectrum of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgical procedures. He completed his medical school training at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine where he earned honors in multiple surgical disciplines. He subsequently completed four years of rigorous general surgical training at the University of Connecticut during which he also completed an additional two-year, post-doctoral Basic Science Research Fellowship at Stanford University under the tutelage of Dr. Michael T.

In addition to his cosmetic and reconstructive work, Dr. Peled helped to found a peripheral nerve surgery institute here in San Francisco.

Testimonials

  • Just wanted to let you know that you broke that episode of neuralgia with that local anesthetic Friday. After such a bad time all that night and morning, I have had not one zinger since then, was able to sleep days and work nights over the weekend without pain. I know this is such a low tech and possibly unimportant-seeming thing for a skilled surgeon to do, but it made an enormous difference in my life that day and I just want to thank you once again.

  • Dr. Peled is the real deal. His technical skills should be seen as elite. My headaches and neck pain are gone as a result of the surgery.

    I suffered from migraines for 2 years. I went to numerous doctors and was on a wide range of serious pain medications. No one could help me or diagnose me. After learning of Dr. Peled I made an appointment with his San Francisco office and within 20 minutes of meeting him he diagnosed me with Occipital Neuralgia and treated me with Botox. Within 3 weeks I had surgery and have been pain and migraine free since. It has been almost a year. Dr. Peled gave me back my life!!!! I would highly recommend him to anyone and will never go to another doctor again!!!! His office staff Cary-Anne and Aimee are the sweetest ladies you will ever meet and go above and beyond their job to help you with anything!!!!

  • Thank You so much Dr. Peled. You have returned to me a great pleasure... the ability to walk...and enjoy it. The time test was a walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee. I didn't walk the whole thing but the 6 miles over the day only required a few rests. The important part... no pain and no night-time burning. I couldn't have enjoyed my vacation nor would I be able to keep a positive outlook without your help. Thank you doesn't seem to be enough!

    R.R. A very appreciative patient!!
