About me

Mr Colin Hart read Medicine at Leicester Medical School and went on to train in London and the East Midlands. He studied at the Royal Free Hospital for his Doctorate and was awarded his MD by the University of London. He successfully secured the Pan-London Colorectal Fellowship before taking up a locum Consultant post at University College Hospital. He has been appointed at the Royal Free Hospital as a Consultant General, Colorectal and Emergency Surgeon since 2015.

He is proficient in a wide variety of both keyhole and traditional procedures for abdominal and pelvic surgery, which is performed where appropriate under local, regional or general anaesthesia. He regularly manages complex abdominal wall hernias and performs major abdominal and colorectal procedures in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular disease, adhesional and other obstructions of the bowel.

Mr Hart is also experienced in the traditional management of more minor complaints, favouring novel but proven techniques such as Transanal Haemorrhoidal Dearterialisation (THD) for the management of haemorrhoids. He treats skin lesions including pilonidal disease, performs excision biopsies, treats all hernias and manages anorectal complaints such as abscesses, fistulae and fissures.

He is experienced in the assessment and management of sudden onset abdominal pain, including appendicitis and its complications, having performed hundreds of appendicectomies and laparotomies. He is familiar with the emergency management of most perforations, including peptic ulcers and those of diverticular origin.

Mr Hart provides a safe, effective service with the patient at the very centre of all decisions and aims to return patients to their normal activities as soon as possible.
