About

Dr. Bethany Anderson is an associate professor in the Department of Human Oncology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and a member of the UW Health Breast Center.

She specializes in providing state-of-the art radiation therapy treatments for women with breast and gynecologic cancer. This includes brachytherapy and other forms of accelerated partial breast irradiation, prone breast irradiation, MRI-guided radiotherapy, and intensity modulated radiation therapy.

Dr. Anderson earned her medical degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (formerly UW Medical School), Madison, WI, an internship at St. Luke’s Hospital, Milwaukee, WI and a radiation oncology residency at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. She also completed a brachytherapy fellowship at Institut Gustave Roussy.

Dr. Anderson’s research focuses on reducing the burden and side effects of radiotherapy through methods such as hypofractionation, image-guidance, and refining our ability to safely deliver less radiation (i.e. partial breast irradiation) and omit radiation.
