Leadership in the field of Phlebology

Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen, founder of the Vein Healthcare Center, is at the forefront of the emergent field of vein health. A nationally recognized phlebologist (vein specialist), Dr. Asbjornsen is the only doctor in Maine to be named a Fellow by the American College of Phlebology (ACP), a distinction held by only 56 other phlebologists in the country.
Since 2010, Dr. Asbjornsen has received numerous honors from the ACP, including first place recognition from the ACP’s 24th Annual Conference for her work on symptomatic middle cerebral artery embolism after foam sclerotherapy. In recent years, she has been invited to join the faculty of the ACP’s Annual Conferences as both presenter and judge.
In 2014, Dr. Asbjornsen was invited to help mentor the inaugural class of the ACP Leadership Academy, a program that encourages newly practicing and seasoned professionals to further the field of phlebology with a variety of projects. Dr. Asbjornsen worked with Drs. Hansen and Malvehy in their effort to educate the public about vein disease and treatment.
