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.
After laminectomy I have developed retention of urine & was referred to Mr Christopher Anderson. He is very kind hearted & clever Consultant who could explain everything to any individual of any caliber very clearly & fully with alternative treatments. He is ever ready to help at any time whenever I needed help. I am very grateful to him that he has sorted out my problem. I strongly recommend him to any one who has urological problem as he is very approachable ,explain everything simply & clearly suggesting the alternative treatments & his kindness towards patients.
Very clear and direct manner, does what he says he will do, responds to questions with clear answers and when asked for an opinion gave it without hesitation but was also clear that there were alternatives. Inspires confidence. Should I conclude that I want to take a surgical solution to the problem then I want him to do the work.
I was under the care of Mr Chris Anderson for two years who is a very approachable, friendly and reassuring. He fully explains the problem to you in layman's language including using drawings and graphics to ensure you fully understand the problem and the necessary action required to rectify it. Having said that he pulls no punches advising you of the consequences if no action is taken. I underwent a Robotic Pyeloplasty involving the use of the Da Vinci machine and although Mr Anderson did not finish the procedure until 20.45 he personally himself phoned my daughter to advise her how the procedure went. If you have an appointment at Mr Anderson's Outpatient Clinic do not expect to get seen on time as he always runs late due to never hurrying his Consultations. Mr Anderson is a truly caring, dedicated, professional Consultant who I cannot thank enough and would not hesitate to recommend.
The care I received from Mr Anderson was first class. He kept me well-informed with easy to follow information, both before and after the surgery. Mr Anderson also has a wonderfully confident, calm & knowledgeable manner. This is reassuring and you feel you are in safe hands. I am recovering well from the surgery and I compliment his surgical skills in the highest possible terms. Thank you Mr Anderson for the care you provided me.
