Helping patients around the globe overcome Pilonidal Disease
Jeffrey Sternberg, MD, FACS, FASCRS, is a highly skilled, board-certified surgeon best known for his innovative treatment of pilonidal disease (often incorrectly called a pilonidal cyst), a painful skin and tissue infection near the tailbone.
At The Sternberg Clinic in San Francisco, Dr. Sternberg has treated over 1,500 cases of pilonidal disease since 2000, and his surgical protocol known as the Cleft Lift procedure has cured nearly 100% of his patients from this common, but little known, disease.
