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.
My treatment and on-going care have been superb. Mr Anderson put me at ease from the start , following signs of possible prostate cancer notified through my own GP. He explained the results and implications of my detailed biopsy and options for going forward. Having elected to have a radical prostatectomy(removal), he carried this out without delay with great skill, bearing in mind the nature of the tumours. I have been able to resume a normal life, free of worry, with six monthly PSA readings and annual ones recently to guard against any unforeseen spread for seven years. Communication with my GP has been detailed and clear.I owe my survival to Mr Anderson and his professionalism.
This doctor acted professionally elucidating the options and hence my decisions about which way to go regarding treatment. I am an out patient. I do not subscribe to the Americanism 'care'. Dr. Anderson, like all of St George's medical staff treated me professionally, and for this I am very grateful.
Immediately put at ease by his friendly, professional and caring attitude. Never felt like a number on his list but as a worried patient. He explained everything in simple, easy to understand, language. Even drew simple diagrams and fully answered my questions .
