Colin Natali

Consultant Spinal Surgeon


Mr Colin Natali is a top private Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in London specialising in back and spine conditions. As Director of Spine Surgery, he also oversees the multidisciplinary team of spinal experts, providing the latest care in treating conditions of the back and spine.

As a trainee, he enjoyed the challenges of spinal disorders so much that he travelled to Brisbane where he undertook a fellowship in spine surgery. Having gained his fellowship training, he was appointed as Consultant at St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London Hospital. During this time, he was involved in the Helicopter Emergency Service, dealing with high energy spinal trauma as well as coping with the increasing demand of the local population’s demands for back and neck pain treatment. In addition, he was the Programme Director for the Royal London Hospital Orthopaedic Rotation, having over 30 trainees at any one time on the rotation.

After 22 years as an NHS Consultant, he became a full-time private Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon. In his search for ever better ways of delivering care, he invented a novel system for spinal fusion, that with the help of a surgical company (K2M) has become a recognised system of retractors known as “Ravine”.

His interest in multidisciplinary care led him to bring over a system of treatment and set up a physiotherapy company that produced research and answers about the conservative care for back and neck pain. He trains consultants both nationally and internationally in minimally invasive spinal techniques. He is very active in education and gives regular lectures to groups of health care professionals.

He sees and treats adult patients with all conditions affecting the spine and is a keen advocate of non-operative treatment and is heavily involved in a multidisciplinary approach. He regularly provides second opinions for spinal conditions. He is actively involved with the design and development of spinal implants and approach techniques and is currently involved in retractor design as well as innovative models for implants.
