Dr. Neil Barber

Appointed as a Consultant Urological Surgeon to Frimley Park Hospital in 2005, Neil Barber is Clinical Lead for Urology at Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and Director of the Frimley Renal Cancer Centre and the Frimley Benign Prostate Clinical Research Centre.

His particular subspecialist interests in managing waterworks symptoms in women and men, particularly for men suffering with BPH, has led to his involvement in new treatments including the introduction to NHS England of the Greenlight laser in 2002, Urolift in 2014, Aquablation of the prostate using the Aquabeam system and iTind in 2019. Neil has been involved in numerous high quality national, European and global studies as well as acting as an advisor to NICE in this field.

 

Dr. Kevin Zorn

Dr. Kevin Zorn is a dual-board-certified (US and Canada), minimally-invasive urologist, oncology-fellowship trained at the University of Chicago. As a native Montrealer, Dr. Zorn received his undergraduate and MD degrees from McGill University where he completed his residency in urology in 2005. His main focus of clinical and scientific interest is in the surgical treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer. Other than his focus on robotic surgery with over 2500 robotic prostatectomy cases performed, Dr. Zorn is also the national Canadian surgical trainer and international proctor for the Greenlight XPS 180W laser since 2012. He has also an active proctor from residents to international urologists with integration of simulation experience. He has also been an invited speaker/visiting professor for his academic work on laser therapies and techniques for BPH management. He was the first in Canada to utilize the latest version of the Greenlight 180W XPS laser for BPH and has pioneered an enucleation-like technique to standardize Greenlight technique. Not only has Dr. Zorn helped with the national BPH guidelines, he is also an active with various other minimally invasive therapies with Urolift, Rezum, Aquablation and other cutting edge technologies including Optilume and Zenflow.

Dr. Zorn is an active researcher and a dedicated teacher to his urology residents and fellows.
