Miss Natalia Price MD, MRCOG

Consultant Gynaecologist and Urogynaecologist

Lead for Oxford mesh removal centre

Natalia qualified in 1996 with first class honours; all her postgraduate medical and surgical training was in the Oxford Deanery. She undertook higher specialist training in laparoscopic (keyhole) pelvic floor reconstructive surgery and was appointed as a Consultant Gynaecologist in Oxford in 2010.

The main focus of her work is minimal access laparoscopic (keyhole) surgical techniques to treat a wide range of gynaecological problems, including prolapse and incontinence.

Natalia is the lead for Oxford BSUG/RCOG accredited Mesh removal centre treating many women with mesh complications, offering them laparoscopic mesh removal and native tissue repair surgery.

Natalia is the surgical lead for the Oxford Endometriosis Centre, performing complex laparoscopic laser excisions of endometriosis. For the endometriosis cases which involve the bowel she operates in conjunction with Consultant Colorectal surgeons in order to perform these advanced laparoscopic procedures safely.

She is co-director of Oxford’s subspeciality urogynaecology training programme and preceptor for ATSM in Laparoscopy Surgery for Excision of Benign Disease. She lectures at the annual BSGE anatomy course and the Oxford Anatomy course for urgynaecologists.

Natalia is passionate about improving and developing laparoscopic (keyhole) surgical techniques. She has a major interest in teaching laparoscopic surgery and have lectured widely both nationally and internationally, she has visited many units around the country performing and teaching laparoscopic prolapse reconstructive surgery and mesh removal surgery.

She maintains a strong interest in academic research and has already published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters. Her current research projects include a prospective study comparing uterus-preserving, minimally invasive surgery for prolapse with more traditional hysterectomy.

She is also currently studying the outcomes of the native tissue laparoscopic continence surgery as well as outcomes of laparoscopic mesh removal surgery.
