After Medical School, Mr Price began his surgical training in Stoke Mandeville Hospital, Buckinghamshire, and then moved to London for his general surgical training including Breast Surgery, Renal Transplantation, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Orthopaedics, Vascular Surgery and Accident & Emergency. He then commenced his Plastic Surgery training in Billericay, then Chelmsford before commencing a period of formal research.
During his time in research Mr Price worked on a material known as Hyaluronic Acid – used today in the dermal filler Restylane®. At the end of his period of research, Mr Price attained the qualification of Doctorate of Medicine from the University of London. Shortly thereafter he began his Registrar training in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in the North West region (Manchester & Preston).
During his Registrar training Mr Price attended 3 fellowships; with Professor Ian Taylor in Melbourne, Australia researching blood vessel anatomy, with Mssrs McGeorge, Whitby & Hancock, an aesthetic fellowship (Mr McGeorge is the current President of BAAPS), and finally a year-long fellowship with Mr Katsaros in Adelaide, Australia doing Head & Neck Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery and Facial Reconstruction.
Mr Price was appointed in October 2006 as a Consultant in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge, a position he took up on 1st February 2007. As well as his Cosmetic Surgery interests his specialist interests in the NHS include Head & Neck Reconstruction and Facial Reconstruction.
Mr Price is often asked to work with the media and this takes place in a number of ways. He has been contacted by national papers and magazines for comments or to write articles, and has been involved in filming for television. Mr Price does not take part in media that does not truly reflect Plastic Surgery and it's risks, and so has had to turn down some media approaches who he felt were looking for a sensationalist point of view. Examples of his media work can be found here.
