    About

    Mr Barton-Smith's speciality is complex robotic and minimally invasive and surgery for benign gynaecological conditions mainly related to pelvic pain and subfertility related to endometriosis but also including uterine fibroids and abnormal bleeding. He is the Director of The Endometriosis Clinic Ltd in London.

    Peter completed a four-year fellowship at the MATTU, Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford from 2004-2008 and gained a doctorate degree in endometriosis. He trained in the use of the da Vinci© robotic surgical system during a period as a Visiting Consultant in the USA at the North Texas Hospital in Dallas in 2008. He then established the first and leading UK robotic gynaecological surgery programme at the Royal Surrey. He has performed over 600 procedures making him the most experienced gynaecologist in robotic surgery in the UK. He moved to Singapore to be Chief of the Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery Section in the O&G Dept at Singapore General Hospital in 2013. 

    In 2016 he returned to the UK and started The Endometriosis Clinic to provide quality care for endometriosis and pelvic pain sufferers. This is currently based at The Princess Grace Hospital. The Clinic uses a unique multidisciplinary, holistic and personalised approach to pelvic pain and endometriosis meaning that help is often possible for women who have been searching for years for solutions. Women come internationally from many countries and backgrounds to The Endometriosis Clinic, mostly on the word of mouth recommendations of women that have had successful treatment. 

    He continues as an international authority in endometriosis and robotics and teaches other specialists worldwide.

    Mr Barton Smith was so compassionate and made me feel comfortable and cared for. I don’t think I can thank him enough for what he’s done for me so far. His professionalism, knowledge and skill are second to none and I trust him completely. I don’t know how he manages to do what he does as he is so busy but I’m grateful regardless.

    As well as being one of the best in the world at Endometriosis excision and one of the few who also uses the DaVinci robot, he is also friendly, attentive and authentic, incredibly responsive to email queries and explains everything thoroughly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone dealing with suspected Endometriosis especially if they would like to avoid unnecessary further surgeries and the best chance at getting their life back.

    Peter took his time to explain my individual case in a way I could understand. Even though I had very minimal endometriosis I felt I was believed from the very start about how much pain it was causing me and impacting my life. I liked that he went through the surgical video with me the morning after surgery. It was very reassuring.

    From the Netherlands I traveled to London especially for a treatment by Peter Barton-Smith. Before you go to him, you already know that he is one of the best specialists for Endometriosis, so expectations are high. And he fulfills these expectations for me. Peter is the first doctor I had confidence in, and that confidence grew until after the surgery. Thank you very much Peter! I am looking forward to the future again.

    Mr Peter Barton-Smith was fantastic, he explained my procedure clearly, took me through everything the following morning, and even gave me a good laugh which is exactly what you want after some of the heavy information you can find out after these surgeries. Should I ever need a procedure in the future, there is not another specialist I would consider.

    Mr Barton-Smith is caring and professional. He listened to my concerns and validated them. He is the first medical staff member that made me feel like I was been seen and not just an nhs number. Brilliant surgeon and if I need surgery again in the future I will certainly be back. Thank you again for your service.
