Biography

Dr. Barter is recognized as one of the country’s leading gynecologists by Good Housekeeping, perennially as one of the Top Doctors in the Washington, D.C. area, as well as one of only two Gynecologic Oncologists noted as top doctors in Northern Virginia. He is currently a Clinical Professor at George Washington University and director of Gynecologic Oncology research at Holy Cross Hospital. He received his medical degree from the University of Virginia and completed two years of Internal Medicine and four years of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Duke University Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Alabama Medical Center. He was then at Lombardi Cancer Center / Georgetown University Medical Center for 16 years, rising to the rank of Professor. Dr. Barter joined Maryland Oncology Hematology in April 2022 at White Oak Cancer Center.  Dr. Barters’ current interests include surgery using the Da Vincia surgical robot to assist in Gynecologic surgery.

He has lectured locally and internationally on this topic. He was recently ranked in the top 15 users worldwide for robotic gynecologic and gynecologic oncology procedures and is presenting the Holy Cross Gynecologic and Gynecologic Oncology experience at the Middle Atlantic Gynecologic Oncology Symposium. His four-year interest in the development of a serum blood test for Ovarian Cancer detection will soon culminate in published research involving Serum Proteomics. In conjunction with Holy Cross, he continues his interest in protocols dealing with novel approaches for Ovarian Cancer treatment, having received research grants. A novel study to determine cancer cell sensitivity to chemotherapy has just begun.
