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.
I have known Mr Anderson for some ten years since we removed a cancerous kidney from me We met up again just after Easter 2019 when the lymph nodes in my surviving kidney were playing up. Without hesitation he arranged a biopsy for me which resulted in swift action and treatment which is ongoing. I cannot thank Mr Anderson and Mr De La Rue enough for this prompt action.

Mr Anderson is an approachable and professional consultant who takes time to listen and consider your problem and then to explain simply what he believes could be the cause. His use of diagrams is very helpful. He then considers and discusses his proposed strategy for tackling the problem, using tests and diagnostics in a structured way. Mr Anderson's office is also run in a friendly and efficient manner.
