Physician Bio

Dr. Laura Norton completed her internship and residency in General Surgery at Indiana University and 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 feels strongly all women facing breast cancer should know all their treatment options.

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 Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Surgical Oncology, and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
