He is the lead Plastic Surgeon for Head & Neck Reconstruction in Addenbrooke’s Hospital and, until recently, was also the lead Plastic Surgeon for skin cancer.
Mr Price is an experienced and fully trained surgeon. He began his training in the world-famous St Andrews Hospital, Billericay (now the St Andrews Centre, Chelmsford) before embarking on a period of research, looking into the role of Hyaluronic Acid (the material in most cosmetic filler injections) in Tissue Engineering in the Royal London Hospital. He then trained as a Registrar in the North West, including the Christie Hospital (Europe’s largest cancer hospital at the time). Subsequently he undertook two fellowships in world-famous units in Australia, specialising in Head & Neck and Facial Reconstruction and an Aesthetics Fellowship in Cheshire and Merseyside.
Mr Price has a significant interest in facial reconstruction and aesthetics and undertakes all forms of cosmetic surgery to the face. As a facial specialist he also deals with difficult facial cancers on a daily basis, as well as receiving referrals for patients in whom surgery or non-surgical treatments has gone wrong. Mr Price is an esteemed surgeon who in the NHS specialises in facial reconstruction and, particularly, facial palsy, as well as emergency work.
Mr Price was, until 2010, the Lead Plastic Surgeon for skin cancer services in Cambridgeshire. He also currently undertakes Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy for Malignant melanoma, the latest modality in this field.
Mr Price also specialises in mole removal with minimal scarring, and undertakes a ’See & Treat’ service. In these appointments, suitable patients can have a moles removed immediately in clinic, with minimal scarring and maximum convenience.

Mr Price is often asked to work with the media and has been seen recently on Embarrassing Fat Bodies. He has been contacted by national papers and magazines for comments or to write editorial based on his research as well as his consultancy work.
Mr Price does not take part in media that does not truly reflect Plastic Surgery and its risks, and so has had to turn down some media approaches who he felt were looking for a sensationalist point of view. A truely ethical surgeon, you will feel at home and at ease with him and he is a person who will be there with you through your process, making sure that this is not just about going private, its about going personal!
