Robotic Kidney Surgery Specialists

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. 
Having completed a fellowship in robotic and laparoscopic kidney surgery at Frimley Park Hospital, Muddassar Hussain and Manar Malki also work with Neil Barber in the Urology team and perform robotic assisted kidney surgery for our patients in Surrey and London.

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.
