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 aways felt as though I am receiving the best care when seeing Chris Anderson, I always feel listened to and he takes time with me explaining anything that I want to know. I have been under his care for 10 years now and feel very lucky to have him as my doctor and would recommend him, as I have done, unhesitatingly
I am a patient from Sri Lanka. I was reffered to Mr. Anderson by Mr. Perry. He took necessary steps in identifying my kidney cancer and explained what i should do. I was admitted on princess grace hospital to undergo a partial removal of my kidney. Now i am completely cancer free and back to my normal rythm. Also he discussed my future treatment plan before leaving back to Sri Lanka. He is nice and kind person. Most importantly he gives priority for the patients needs and he gives that confidence a patient need.
My PSA levels went to 5.1 so my GP referred me to St George's. I am pretty well versed in symptoms and Mr Anderson went through them again, with illustrations. After examination, he said it was fine and explained that at my age (80) there could be tiny cancerous cells. I said I was quite happy to be monitored without a need at the moment for MRI scans. The urine test was conducted swiftly and was ok. I found Mr Anderson to be extremely pleasant and matters of fact. I can't think how he might have treated me better - it was an altogether excellent consultation.
