Minimally invasive surgery for patients with kidney cancer

Welcome to the home of Robotic Kidney Surgery.  This site is dedicated to providing you with all the information you need to make an informed choice on surgical procedures available to treat kidney cancer.

Neil Barber specialises in kidney and adrenal surgery and was an integral member of the team that successfully introduced the first Da Vinci Robotic System to the home counties, providing a unique regional service in performing robotic assisted partial or radical nephrectomy, nephro-ureterectomy, adrenalectomy and pyeloplasty.

Unfortunately, the incidence of kidney cancers continues to increase across the modern world, but thankfully a significant proportion of these new tumours are detected incidentally and are very small in size.  For those where there is more advanced disease, there is an increasing number of effective chemotherapy treatments available. As a result, the management of kidney or renal cancer has become increasingly specialised.
