“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.“

    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 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.

    Peter was incredibly kind, patient and understanding. From the first consultation he made me feel so listened to and completely at ease. His bedside manner is calm and kind and he made me laugh a lot! He is incredible at what he does and he helped me so much. He took time to explain everything to me in a way I understand. I am a visual learner and so he took the time to draw out diagrams, write notes and was also very responsive to emails and any further questions I had. On the day of the operation he was informative and kind and I felt very at ease with him. Thank you!

    Peter is the most incredible doctor I have ever met and I am not under-exaggerating when I say he changed my life! He’s given me hope back and that’s something I’ll never forget. Thank you so so much!

    Very compassionate and explains everything well. I had to wait longer than usual for surgery, but he let the nurses know and I was allowed to drink some water. Great communication, also quickly after surgery he came by, he called my boyfriend to tell him how it went. I am very pleased with the care of Peter Barton-Smith.
