Mr Christopher Anderson is a consultant Urological surgeon with a general Urological practise as well as a specialist interest in renal and prostate cancer. In his general Urological practise he manages a wide spectrum of conditions : urinary infections, voiding and bladder problems, enlarged prostates (BPH), haematuria (blood in urine), circumcision, fertility workup, vasectomy / reversal vasectomy and erectile dysfunction. He has particular expertise in minimally invasive robotic and laparoscopic surgical approaches. Mr Anderson completed his undergraduate work at Stellenbosch and his postgraduate training in Cape Town, South Africa, before taking up a substantive consultant post at St George's Healthcare in 1999. He undertook fellowships to Cleveland, the University of Miami and Detroit in the United States before travelling to the University of Leipzig in Germany to further his training in both renal and prostate cancer surgery. Mr Anderson was one of the first to adopt laparoscopic techniques in urology surgery in the UK. In 2004 he introduced laparoscopic renal cryotherapy, also the first operation of its kind in the UK. He continued to develop this technique and has the largest series with long term follow-up in the country. He was an integral member of the team that pioneered robotic surgery in the UK, introducing the robotic surgery programme to St George's Healthcare in July 2008, and has successfully developed the service as lead robotic surgeon.
Dr. Anderson not only welcomed me very nicely but asked me how I was, how I was feeling... he explained to me the issue I have, how it works, what to do.. he showed the results of my tests, some graphics, and compared those to others in a book. Really pleasant to talk too, smily, serious and looking at my eyes all the time. I really appreciate this when talking about my health.
I can honestly say, having met Mr Anderson through a number of appointments that his work seems extremely thorough. He instilled confidence in me from day one. He was the lead surgeon for my partial nephrectomy at St. George’s and during my week’s stay in hospital, he followed up my care almost every day. I have since had a meeting with him to arrange a further check-up since my op. He seems to be highly skilled and knowledgeable gentleman and I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Anderson to anyone who requires treatment in his field of expertise.
I have the utmost respect for Mr Anderson. He is an excellent consultant and removed a renal cancer that was diagnosed apprx 11 years ago. Since then, I have undergone check-ups and felt completely reassured with his advice. He has also been extremely caring throughout the initial operation and subsequently which has made an enormous difference. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
