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.
Chris Anderson was mater of fact, clear and straightforward. The risks were flagged but fortunately the procedure was problem free. Very professional.
Mr Anderson was patient with my concerns about possible surgery, and very reassuring. The diagrams he showed me were clear and easy to follow, and he answered all my questions fully.
Mr Anderson is a pleasure to have as a Consultant/Surgeon. He listens and explains anything you need to you in layman’s terms. He makes you feel at ease every time you see him.
Mr Anderson is clearly on top of his game as a urologist but in addition he has a very warm and reassuring manner and explains things clearly. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
