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.
Mr Anderson took a great deal of time with me post-op, he answered my many and varied questions succinctly and informatively. He is a credit to his profession and if he ever decides to change profession he would make a fortune as a stand-up comedian!
Chris was first rate in every aspect of my treatment; from initial consultation, through diagnosis, treatment to eventual cure.
Mr Anderson came highly recommended by a mutual friend (in the medical profession) whose opinion I trust implicitly. My experience bears this out. Mr Anderson has a very straightforward manner which immediately instils confidence in his diagnosis and judgement of what is the best way to proceed for the patient. Given that he performed a major operation on me my post-operative recuperation has been remarkably quick and painless.
