What People Say About Dr. Mark Welton, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

1999 had colon removed due to ulcerative colitis by another dr. Due to some complications my wife researched other doctors and found a doctor who teaches other doctors and was lucky enough to get Dr. Welton at Stanford. He did a reversal surgery approx. 18-24 mos. after my original surgery. I started having some issues and he strongly suggested I have a permanent bag attached. In 2006 he performed that surgery. It is now 2019. Life is very good and no issues.
