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.
He is a very professional surgeon. He managed to save my kidney by performing a robotic surgery. He removed the metastatic tumour from my kidney to save my life.
Mr Christopher Anderson, Is a caring doctor with a very good rapport with his clients, professional and friendly. He has made me feel at ease and has helped me with his skill in attending to my particular problem.
Recommend: Yes I would always recommend him. He also specialises in robotic radical prostatectomy and radical kidney removal. He was recommended to me by a friend who had a robotic radical prostatectomy 6 years ago. Trust: Yes very much. Mr. Anderson goes that 'extra mile' in his diagnostic checks pre surgery and in my case did not accept me automatically as a surgical patient/client until those extra diagnostic checks ( PET/CT in my case ) were done. His easy style of talking to a patient combines with an approach trying always to under promise and over deliver Listening: listens well and takes careful notes. His office is also very responsive
