Surgeons and Providers


Denise C. Norton, M.D., F.A.C.S

Dr. Norton has been a surgeon in Denver since 1989. Her surgical practice focuses on the care of patients with breast cancer and breast disease. Dr. Norton was one of the first surgeons in Denver to begin using the technique of sentinel lymph node biopsies. She works with a team of specialists who optimize the care for patients. She established the weekly multidisciplinary Breast Conference at Saint Joseph Hospital where the treatment plans for each patient diagnosed with breast disease or breast cancer are reviewed by the physicians and the entire team caring for the patient. Dr. Norton is the Medical Director for the Breast Care Center at Saint Joseph Hospital.

Dr. Norton's second area of interest is in treating vein disease. In 2003 she established the Denver Vein Center and Aesthetic Laser Specialists, where diseases of veins, specifically varicose veins and spider veins are treated using minimally invasive techniques with the newest available lasers and technologies. In addition, she provides laser aesthetic services and Botox for the treatment of wrinkles, skin laxity, hair removal, pigmented lesions, age spots, sun spots, and skin rejuvenation.
