At the Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers Breast Oncology Program, we understand that women with breast cancer are people first and patients second. We know you face challenges beyond your immediate medical care. That knowledge guides how our specialists work with you to create a care plan that takes your individual needs into account.

The clinicians in our center include some of the world's leading experts in breast cancer. We offer the most advanced treatments, including promising breast cancer clinical trials.

In addition to offering the latest in clinical care, we provide a wide range of resources to support you physically and emotionally throughout treatment.

Our treatment team focuses exclusively on breast cancer, and has experience with all types of the disease, including ductal carcinoma in situ, infiltrating (invasive) ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma in situ, infiltrating (invasive) lobular carcinoma, inflammatory breast cancer, Paget's disease, and phyllodes tumors.

We have experts in cancer genetics, risk factors for breast cancer, and cancer prevention. Our breast imaging (mammography), breast pathology, and anesthesiology services are world-renowned. In addition, we offer specialized programs for young women with breast cancer and inflammatory breast cancer.
