    Physician Bio

    Originally from Southern California, Dr. Laura Norton spent most of her formative years in the Midwest. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Miami University of Ohio, and her Medical Degree from Indiana University School of Medicine. She completed her internship and residency in General Surgery at Indiana University as well then went on to complete her Breast Surgery Fellowship at the renowned John Wayne Cancer Institute in Santa Monica, CA - one of the premier breast surgery fellowships in the country, certified by the Society of Surgical Oncology. Her mentors at the John Wayne Cancer Institute are credited with developing the sentinel lymph node procedure in breast cancer.

    During her specialty training, Dr. Norton mastered new procedures such as Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy, the placement of partial breast radiation catheters, and Oncoplastic breast conservation techniques. She has experience with difficult cases, such as cancer operations for patients with existing breast implants. She is the only fellowship-trained Breast Surgeon in Sonoma County.

    Dr. Norton has presented her research at national and international meetings, and is published in several peer-reviewed journals, including the Annals of Surgery and the Journal of Surgical Oncology. Her efforts have earned awards, most notably for her work examining breast surgery outcomes in underinsured patients. She is a Member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, and a Candidate Member of the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Surgical Oncology, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

    In her free time, Dr. Norton enjoys spending time with her family and friends, running, yoga, Pilates, and exploring all that the North Bay has to offer.
