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.
As a Urologist he seems to be very up to date and takes great care in diagnosing problems and recommending the most appropriate treatment.
i was refered to mr anderson as one of my kidneys was not working,they found i had renal cancer,and had to be removed.he spoke to me and put me at ease.that was in june 2016.i had a radical nepherectomy,which mr anderson peformed he explained the procedure to me and put me at ease.and for that i would like to thank him.
Chris Anderson is the most skilful and caring of consultants. He has saved my life multiple times. He is loved and respected by patients and nursing staff at the hospital, as he is brilliant at what he does, as well as kind and good humoured with everyone. He is dedicated to his patients. In summary, he is an inspirational practitioner in every way, and is ably supported by his wife, Janine, who looks after the administration matters with infinite kindness and patience.
I am always aware that doctors seem pushed for time but I felt assured Mr Anderson took time to look at my file and keen to listen to my anxious waffle and clearly explain his plans for my care.
