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.
Good, straightforward explanations and advice in consultation with Mr Anderson. Internal urethrotomy well performed and care at Parkside very good. Follow-up consultation equally well conducted and careful decision made whether further treatment would be necessary.
Mr Anderson has a really great personality. He was very friendly and approachable. He was easy to talk to and had a good sense of humour. Fortunately, I received good news so my appointment was only short. I was glad to have the opportunity to thank him for performing my operation and my recovery went well. I had no problems with any of the incisions and the nurse removed the clips without any problem at all. Although the need for this operation was unexpected the care I received both before and after the operation was excellent. I believe I was extremely fortunate to have had Mr Anderson perform the operation and to have received such a high standard of post operative care.
Chris Anderson has given me excellent care since I returned to England from the USA in 2001 . Originally he was just watching over me for the risk of prostate cancer but more recently the problems have flowed from an overlarge prostate , including blood flow . He has done 2 TURP procedures on me . So far so good . I like him .
All very good to date. You have asked for suggestions for improvement: my only suggestion would be to see patients closer to their appointment time - waiting around can cause increased stress to the nervous patient - but I appreciate that it's not always possible.
