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 was completely confident in his ability to perform the robotic surgery who thoroughly explained the procedure to me. Mr Anderson and his Secretary, were very helpful, attentive and accommodating with all inquiries both prior, throughout the procedure and thereafter.
Mr Anderson listens to the patient very carefully and takes time and effort to fully understand what the patient’s symptoms and concerns are. This allows one to fully evaluate the advice and recommendations he gives and permits a dialogue to be developed between the patient and the doctor. He is clear, precise and easy to understand. He manner is confident and capable which reassures that he has given adequate consideration to what the patient’s needs are. I was well cared for after my operation with daily visits by Mr Anderson and I had no post-operative pain at all.
My Anderson performed my operation and it was done to a very high standard. Mr Anderson is a very kind and caring doctor. I am forever grateful to him for making me better.
