About Mr Colin Natali
GMC number: 3117440
Year qualified: 1986
Place of primary qualification: University of London
Mr Colin Natali is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The Lister Hospital and Chelsea Outpatient Centre. He is actively involved in maximising non-surgical treatment protocols to avoid surgery, and in the development of surgical devices and techniques to optimise the outcome of surgery, should that be required. His surgical interests include spine surgery, neck pain, back pain, disc prolapse, minimal access spine surgery, spinal stenosis and endoscopic discectomy. He performs all forms of spinal surgery and pain management techniques for patients with conditions affecting their spine.
Mr Natali graduated in medicine in 1986 from the University of London. Fellowship trained in Brisbane, he took up a post as a Consultant at St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London Hospital dealing with degenerative conditions of the spine, disc prolapses, spinal tumours, infections and trauma. He remained in the NHS for 15 years before taking up full-time private practice. In 2001 he founded a private rehabilitation clinic in Tower Hill (called ‘back2normal’), that deals with neck and back pain. In 2009 he founded ‘All About Spines’, a multidisciplinary group dealing with conditions that affect the spine.
Mr Natali is involved in training undergraduates, postgraduates and other medical groups. He is a senior lecturer for undergraduates at Queen Mary Westfield College. He strongly believes in exhausting conservative treatment first and using surgery as the last resort.
