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.
Chris took my case for laparascopic surgery with my local NHS team would not do. In doing so, he made a huge difference not just to me and my recovery, but also to my family. From my first meeting, the arrangements, the operation itself, his communication with my husband and then the after-care were all excellent. I like to understand what's happening and Chris explained everything and answered every question. With my follow-ups, he does the same. He and his practice manager made an extremely stressful time as stress-free as possible and I'm truly grateful to them.
Mr Anderson is a very personable surgeon who listens and carefully explains the procedure and then carries it out with maximum skill and effectiveness. He is someone who inspires trust and delivers.
He is a very experienced professional and very direct and to the point; please ignore his slightly abrupt manner at times as he is very focused on what the patient needs.
I am totally satisfied this doctor. He conducted keyhole surgery which I recover quickly. Great advantage of him is his PA (Mrs. Anderson). She is very good at what she is doing and reliable and approachable.
This doctor is an expert on Prostate problems and related issues to do with bladders. He is highly experienced and very good to talk to and he listens and gives good advice. I would recommend him highly. He has strong links with St Georg's teaching hospital in Tooting.
