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.
Recommend: Yes I would always recommend him. He also specialises in robotic radical prostatectomy and radical kidney removal. He was recommended to me by a friend who had a robotic radical prostatectomy 6 years ago. Trust: Yes very much. Mr. Anderson goes that 'extra mile' in his diagnostic checks pre surgery and in my case did not accept me automatically as a surgical patient/client until those extra diagnostic checks ( PET/CT in my case ) were done. His easy style of talking to a patient combines with an approach trying always to under promise and over deliver Listening: listens well and takes careful notes. His office is also very responsive
I have known Mr. Christopher Anderson since 2011 when he performed robotic partial nephrectomy surgery on me. He was recommended to me by my Oncologist at the LOC. He has always listened to me and given me the utmost respect, to say nothing of the superb care. I would only want to see him as and when I have a renal issue as I have so much confidence in his ability. Elizabeth Anne Cohen
I saw Chris Anderson yesterday for the first time and was very impressed and pleased with the consultation. I have no hesitation in recommending him. He listened to what I had to say and answered each of my questions thoughtfully.
Dr Anderson is a very good listener and has a very easy manner that puts one at ease. Overall he made what could have been a difficult and awkward experience interesting and stress free.
