He undertook fellowships to Cleveland the University of Miami and Detroit in the United States before travelling to the University of Leipzig Germany furthering 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.
