Mr Colin Elton is a Consultant Surgeon practising in Central & North West London hospitals (see Contact Details for hospitals). Mr Elton performs surgery in all fields relating to general and colorectal surgery and paediatric surgery such as bowel cancer surgery, colorectal cancer surgery, haemorrhoids and hernias. He also specialises in Robotic and Laparoscopic surgery. (see 'areas of expertise').
Mr Elton believes the advances of laparoscopic and robotic surgery offer huge benefits to patients and he will endeavour to perform keyhole surgery, when it is possible. The advantages include very quick recovery times, a shorter stay in hospital with some patients being discharged on the same day as the operation, less pain following surgery, smaller and reduced scarring and a quicker recovery and return to a normal life.
