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.
What can i say about Mr Anderson and his team. The care and treatment they gave me were second to none. At a very low point in my life ( cancerous growth on the kidney after having one in the bowl removed) he made me feel totally at ease and not all was lost. At no time during all the treatment/surgery did i feel unsure on what he or his team were doing. the operation was done by robot with Mr Anderson controlling it and after a long operation i came out the other end tumour free with minimal scaring. Mr Anderson, Yanee and the rest of the team are a true credit to the NHS. And i would have no doubt in recommending them to any one. They make you feel like your there only patient. Martin Hicks
I think that Mr Christopher Anderson is a first class doctor, he has opperated on me and the results could not have been better, also the staff that have been working with the doctor are also first class, it is only through his work that I am still hear to write this feedback. 10/10 A++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Mr Anderson carried out a thorough investigation and diagnosis of my condition and how to deal with it. I felt confident in the process and results. I like to understand things in some detail and he answered all my questions. Suggestion: I felt able to ask questions but, with those less confident, he could ask if they would like more detail.
Mr Christopher Anderson is a pleasant, understanding and caring man. On all occasions he had the ability to listen and reassure me of what is going on.I would recommend him highly to anyone needing medical advice.
