Mr Neil Haldar, MBBS (Lon), FRCS (Eng), FRCS (UROL), MD (University of London), graduated from King’s College School of Medicine in 1992 and was a demonstrator in anatomy at Guy’s Hospital, London before joining the Oxford Junior Surgical training scheme.
In 1997 he was awarded the Allinson Foundation Research Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons and undertook a Master’s degree at the Nuffield Dept of Surgery in Oxford. Mr Haldar then went on to complete his higher surgical urology training in Oxford following which he undertook further visiting fellowships to the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio and Nantes, France to develop his specialist interest in laparoscopic urology.
In 2005 he was appointed as Clinical Lead in laparoscopic urology to Buckinghamshire NHS Trust. As one of the nominated pelvic cancer surgeons for the Thames Valley Cancer Network he carries out nerve-sparing laparoscopic radical prostatectomy for prostate cancer and radical cystectomy with bladder reconstruction for bladder cancer with excellent continence rates in both procedures. He works closely with a multidisciplinary team that in addition to surgery also offers radical radiotherapy, brachytherapy and chemotherapy.
In 2008 Mr Haldar became one of the first surgeons in the UK to perform single incision transperitoneal and extraperitoneal laparoscopic nephrectomy and pyeloplasty. He has published widely on all aspects of urology and his current main area of research is Enhanced Recovery Surgery.

Current NHS consultant posts held
Consultant Urological Surgeon and lead in laparoscopic urology at Buckinghamshire Hospitals NHS Trust
Completed an MD Thesis, Department of Surgery, Oxford. Currently exploring the physiological and psychological stress associated with surgery, reducing complications, the length of hospitalization and associated costs. Using a multidisciplinary team approach we have reduced our post-operative hospital stay following radical cystectomy from a national average of 21 days down to an average of 8 days. This work has been published and presented at a number of national conferences.
Specialist interest in laparoscopic urology working within strong clinical networks aimed at providing the highest standards of quality of care. Have undertaken management responsibilities including the Oxford Postgraduate School of Surgery, The Royal Society of Medicine urology section, the Chiltern Hospital medical advisory committee, Thames Valley Cancer Network.
