Dr. Cameron Elliott was born and raised in Lac La Biche, Alberta. Following high school, he attended the University of Alberta, earning a BSc Honors degree in Neuroscience (2006) and an MD (2010). Also at the University of Alberta, he completed his neurosurgical residency training, during which time he obtained a PhD in experimental surgery (2018) in the Clinical Investigator Program, examining the postoperative structural changes of the brain after temporal lobe epilepsy surgery as detected by MRI. Dr. Elliott then went on to complete a fellowship in Complex Epilepsy surgery under Mr. Andy McEvoy at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London, United Kingdom, and he followed this up with a fellowship in Pediatric Neurosurgery under Mr. Greg James at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, UK.

Dr. Elliott is currently an Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Alberta. His clinical interests include the neurosurgical treatment of adult and pediatric patients with drug resistant epilepsy as well as pediatric neurosurgery. He is the surgical lead for the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program. He also has strong interest in advanced neuroimaging and the intraoperative MRI surgical theatre.

His research interests are broadly centered on the idea that the perioperative period provides a unique opportunity to examine brain structure using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which may predict eventual clinical outcomes.
