As Director of the Frimley Renal Cancer Service overseeing the introduction of both the Da Vinci and Versius robotic platforms to the trust and the delivery of the highest number of robotic assisted partial nephrectomy per year in the UK. Having established the Frimley Benign Prostate Clinical Research Centre, Mr Barber has led and been involved in all the clinical trials in this rapidly evolving field, facilitating the introduction of Greenlight laser, Urolift, iTIND, and most recently Aquablation to the UK. He is a globally recognised key opinion leader, lecturing and teaching all over the world, including the European School of Urology, and has sat as a clinical expert for NICE for plasma TURP, Greenlight laser, Urolift, Rezum, iTIND, and Aquablation.

He continues to work to bring new technology to patients across the speciality with the overarching aim to offer patients the highest quality care.
