Get to know Surgeon Dr. Jeffrey A. Sternberg, who serves patients in San Francisco, California. 

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 2002, and his surgical protocol cures 100% of his patients. Many of his patients have developed a recurrence after prior surgery elsewhere: approximately 50% of Dr. Sternberg's pilonidal patients have had prior failed operation from other surgeons, and 50% of Dr. Sternberg's pilonidal patients come from outside of the Bay Area for surgery.

His specialties also include disease of the colon and gastrointestinal tract; performing colonoscopies; treating colo-rectal conditions such as fistula, abscess, fissure, and hemorrhoids; and other same-day surgical or office based conditions.

Additionally, Dr. Sternberg is the medical director of The San Francisco Endoscopy Center; he also serves as the surgical director of the Center for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases at California Pacific Medical Center and is a clinical assistant professor of surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. Elected by his peers to leadership positions in the profession, he is a past president of the Northern California Chapter of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgery. The Northern California Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation has selected Dr. Sternberg for the 2017 Champion of Hope Award.

He completed an AB in biochemistry at Dartmouth College, where he graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa. He received his medical degree from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. Dr. Sternberg trained in general surgery at Harvard University’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and went on to complete a fellowship in colon and rectal surgery at the University of Minnesota. He is double board-certified in general and colon and rectal surgery. Many of his patients come to him with recurring pain and infection from failed operations elsewhere.

Surgery is a branch of medicine concerned with diseases and conditions requiring or amenable to operative or manual procedures. As a surgeon, Dr. Sternberg specializes in diseases of the colon and gastrointestinal tract; performing colonoscopies; treating colo-rectal conditions such as fistula, abscess, fissure, and hemorrhoids; and other same-day surgical or office based conditions.
