Meet Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen

Providing Patient Care in a Changing Field

When Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen began her practice, she was entering into a new and growing sector of medicine.  “It was truly a dream of mine to provide great service, to do quality research, to contribute to the field of phlebology, and to provide education to other physicians. It’s becoming reality as I speak,” Asbjornsen told about the opening of The Vein Healthcare Center almost a year ago.

The interview was conducted as part of a spotlight on entrepreneurial women working in the state of Maine. According to the piece, Asbjornsen was working at another vein center in the Portland area, but realized that she wanted to be able to spend more of her time doing research, quantifying data, and helping to train new practitioners in the field.

By establishing The Vein Healthcare Center in South Portland, Maine, where she treats all aspects of vein health for patients in all stages of venous disease, Dr. Asbjornsen not only helps to welcome a new era of health care in the field of Phlebology, but is making her own contribution through research and efforts to help increase public awareness about vein disorders.

The Vein Healthcare Center – Serving Local Communities

When Dr. Asbjornsen opened the The Vein Healthcare Center, her goal was to provide patients, physicians, and the general public with an exceptional resource for medical treatment by a leading vein specialist. Dr. Asbjornsen is a nationally recognized vein specialist, member of the American College of Phlebology, and a board certified phlebologist. She received specialty training from leading phlebologists, and provides treatments that include ambulatory phlebectomy, sclerotherapy, endovenous ablation techniques, laser treatment, ultrasound evaluations, and radiofrequency closures. Such therapies are a far cry from the treatments of yesterday, when “vein stripping” was the considered the standard of care, and many patients' symptoms were left untreated.

As part of Dr. Asbjornsen’s dedication to advancing the standard of care in venous disease and treatment, she is helping a new population living with the symptoms and complications of all stages of venous disease live a fuller, healthier, more comfortable life. Her message to those suffering with the challenges of venous disease is that patients can benefit from today’s minimally-invasive therapies with very little pain and outstanding success rates when performed by an experienced, board certified phlebologist. By serving communities in Maine and New Hampshire in her practice, she has seen her dream realized and has helped many individuals in the process.
