About the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Program

  • Jean Landry, RN, (left) and Beth Overmoyer, MD

  • At Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women Cancer Center's Susan F. Smith Center for Women's Cancers Breast Oncology Program, our dedicated inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) program focuses on treatment, research, and education. Our specialists work together, and with you, to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your unique medical needs.

    Our specialized program in IBC — the only program of its kind in the Northeast — includes breast cancer surgeons, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists who have specific expertise in treating IBC. Our dedicated research program includes research scientists and clinicians who meet regularly to discuss challenging cases and together, develop research programs to address these challenges. This enables us to provide a personalized approach to care for our patients diagnosed with IBC.

    We welcome the opportunity to offer a second opinion and can partner with your local oncologist to review your options at any stage of your treatment.
