Neil J Barber

Neil J Barber is a leading consultant surgeon who performs robotic assisted kidney surgery procedures at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey and in London through Phoenix Hospital Group at 25 Harley Street and Weymouth Street Hospital.

Neil Barber has almost uniquely specialised exclusively in robotic assisted kidney and adrenal surgery, be it for the management of cancer or otherwise, performing more than 150 procedures per year. In total he has performed over 450 robotic assisted and over 1000 laparoscopic procedures. His aim is to provide the highest quality surgical treatment for kidney cancer with an emphasis on the use of modern technology to achieve this with minimum risk, short in-hospital stay and rapid return to normal activity. 

Neil is the lead for renal cancer within the St Luke’s Cancer Alliance. The Alliance covers a population of 2.5 million to the west and south west of London.

Neil has been performing advanced and complex robotic assisted surgery in this field for over 10 years, the Frimley Renal Cancer Centre (FRCC) performing the highest number of robotic assisted partial nephrectomy for renal tumours per year in the UK year on year. He is able to provide a unique service in performing robotic assisted partial nephrectomynephro-ureterectomy, adrenalectomy and pyeloplasty
Whilst building this service around the Intuitive Surgical robotic platform, Da Vinci, Neil is very excited to lead the introduction of a new British surgical robot, Versius (CMR) and as part of FRCC performed the very first robotic assisted radical nephrectomy in Europe using this device in March 2020.

Furthermore, Neil also introduced the option of freezing of small renal tumours, known as cryoablation, employing laparoscopy/ key hole surgery and percutaneous CT guided approaches to perform this. 

Muddassar Husaain

Born and educated in London, Muddassar Hussain qualified as a medical doctor from King’s College London in 2006. He then completed two years as a Foundation Year doctor, followed by two years of general surgical and urological experience, both in the South-East of England. He started his five-year focussed urology training in London and Kent/Surrey/Sussex in 2010 during which time he completed two fellowship years in the management of complex stone disease and complex open renal surgery at Guy’s Hospital in London. Mr Hussain also achieved a Masters degree with distinction in Urology from University College London during his early urological training. He then completed a Fellowship in robotic and laparoscopic kidney surgery at Frimley Park Hospital and continued on as a substantive consultant thereafter.

Muddassar is Department lead on Frimley Park Hospital’s Clinical Effectiveness and Audit Committee, chairs a monthly Morbidity & Mortality meeting and is also Clinical Governance lead.

He has publications in peer-reviewed journals and podium presentations both nationally and internationally and, is Co-Investigator in two trials relating to prostate surgery for bladder outflow obstruction.

Muddassar offers treatments for general urological conditions, including urinary symptoms, stone disease, incontinence, and scrotal and penile abnormalities. He also provides a tertiary regional laparoscopic and robotic surgical service for kidney problems.

Manar Malki

Having completed his Batchelor of Medicine and surgery degree at the University of Jordan in 2006, Manar Malki completed his specialist urological training in the East Midlands. In his last year of training, Manar completed the Stone fellowship at Nottingham University Hospitals. This was followed by a dedicated robotic and laparoscopic renal cancer fellowship at the Frimley Renal Cancer Centre for 16 months. In 2019, Manar joined Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as a Consultant Urological Surgeon.

In addition to general urological problems, Manar provides treatment for patients with inguino-scrotal problems, benign prostate problems, and diagnostic cancer investigations. His sub-specialist interests are in the upper urinary tract (kidney and ureter) cancer and benign conditions (PUJO, renal cysts) , using both robotic and laparoscopic surgery,  and the management of patients with stone disease.

To date, Manar has performed over 300 robotic and laparoscopic kidney operations (including partial nephrectomy, radical nephrectomy, nephroureterectomy and pyeloplasty) , 350 ureteroscopies, and carried out over 60 mini-PCNLs in both his NHS and private practice. His surgical and cancer outcomes are regularly audited against national published data.

Outside of his NHS and private practice, Manar regularly attends and presents at international and national urological conferences. He has a number of publications in peer reviewed journals and is a principal investigator on renal cancer clinical trials at Frimley Renal Cancer Centre.
