Certifications

At Denver Vein Center, Dr. Norton is a vein specialist that believes continuing medical education is one of the most important factors you can do as a medical professional. Continuing medical education consists of educational activities which serve to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession.

Denver Vein is a treatment center that is proud to be certified by a number of prominent medical associations, such as the American Medical Association. Such accreditation is important for a vein specialist and to others in the medical field, and at Denver Vein, Dr. Norton is the recipient of numerous distinctions, certifications, and accreditations in her specialty.

Being a vein doctor that has the proper certifications to practice in their field and specialty, tells patients that the doctor is a competent and a well-qualified practitioner.  It also lets the client know that the doctor engages in continued medical training and study in the ever-changing world of medicine, and that they follow the highest standards of medical care and practice in their area of expertise.

As a vein specialist, Dr. Norton continues to strive to stay on top of new technologies, learning new techniques as they are introduced so she can provide her patients with the best treatment possible.

One of the many notable achievements earned by Dr. Norton is the title of “Fellow”, bestowed upon her from the American College of Surgeons. The letters FACS behind her name indicate she is a not only a vein specialist but a surgeon whose education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed rigorous evaluation, and are consistent with the high standards of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). The ACS is a scientific and educational association of surgeons founded in 1913 to improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice.

As a vein doctor and as a member of the American College of Phlebology, she stays up-to-date on venous disease best practices and medical news specific to vein-related treatments. Dr. Norton is also a member of the Colorado Medical Society and Denver Medical Society, both institutions that demand and promote the best in their members.

As a surgeon and vein specialist, Dr. Norton takes a hands-on approach to her practice.  In 2011, Dr. Norton obtained her Registered Vascular Technician (RVT) accreditation and her RPVI accreditation as a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation. Both certifications are instrumental designations for conducting ultrasounds, which she performs personally in the office. Dr. Norton feels it is important that from the beginning, she is the one seeing the patient anatomy and diagnosing the problem.

Dr. Norton continues to strive to stay on top of new technologies, learning new techniques as they are introduced so she can provide her patients with the best treatment possible and be the best vein specialist.

In April of 2017, Dr. Norton will be attending Ultrasound Hands on Training and the International Vein Congress.  Both of these events are important educational programs designed specifically for physicians who are seeking to continue to grow in the field of varicose veins.

An experienced and accomplished doctor, surgeon, and venous specialist, Dr. Norton of the Denver Vein Center represents the best in her field.  For more information or to schedule an appointment, call The Denver Vein Center at (303) 777-8346, and find relief today.
