    About

    Mr Colin Elton, Consultant General Surgeon, works within the Barnet Hospital and Edgware Community Hospital. He is highly experienced in performing keyhole and robotic resections for colorectal cancer and rectal prolapse, as well as haemorrhoidal artery ligation.

    Mr Elton has set up an excellent colorectal service in the Barnet Hospital and holds the position of Clinical Lead for Endoscopy for this hospital and the Chase Farm NHS Trust. He also runs an additional clinic focusing on hernia repairs in adult and paediatric patients.

    He is a dedicated teacher, running courses across London and organising a teaching programme that teaches the techniques needed for hernia repairs and laparoscopic cholecystectomy to surgical registrars.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    I have referred patients to them

    "Mr Colin Elton is a fantastic surgeon specialising in general surgery and surgery for bowel cancer. Mr Elton is very thoughtful and precise in his decision making regarding surgery for bowel cancer and operates in a way where the patients individual and specific needs and wishes are taken in to account and always with the patients best interests in the forefront of his mind. I would recommend Mr Elton to patients, friends and family and regularly refer patients to him for investigations and treatment."
