Mr Christopher Anderson is a consultant urological surgeon with a specialist interest in renal and prostate cancer. 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.
