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.
I have always found Chris Anderson one of the most positive people I have ever met, warmly friendly but also highly focused. It has been a pleasure to be treated by him.
Over a number of years, Mr Anderson has operated and looked after me in a most considerate manner. He has always explained my condition and treatment clearly, with the treatment given quickly and so far successfully. I have complete faith in him and highly recommend him and his team.
I was referred to Mr Anderson as a tumour was detected on my left kidney. He successfully extracted it and left most of my kidney intact and still fully functioning. This was my first ever surgical operation, so thought I would be apprehensive and nervous about the whole experience. But Mr Anderson's calm and reassuring way put any nerves at ease. He always made time to take any questions from me (even the stupid ones...). I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone who has a similar issue to myself to get referred to Mr Anderson. An incredibly skilled, but down to earth Surgeon
