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.
Mt Anderson has being looking after me for the past 8 years after a successful removal of a cancerous kidney. At all times both myself and my wife have found his professionalism coupled with thoughtfulness exceptional. At times when my wife has become anxious about my prognosis Mr Anderson took great care to phone her, even on her mobile, to reassure her which was so much appreciated I personally very much like his directness and honesty about any medical condition that may affect me.
Friendly,welcoming,calm, easy to talk to and listened to all our questions. He took away our anxiety because we both came away from each appointment feeling confident that my husband was getting the best advice and care
