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.
