Mr Paul Anderson – consultant urologist
Paul Anderson qualified from Manchester in 1994 and undertook general surgical training in New Zealand and the Mersey region prior to joining the West Midlands urology specialist registrar rotation.
He gained further subspecialist training in Genito-Urethral Reconstructive Surgery (GURS) through a recognised fellowship post in Leicester and the Institute of Urology, London, working for David Ralph and a travelling scholarship to Italy to work with Prof Guido Barbagli. He was awarded the gold medal in the specialist urology exit exams.
In 2007 Mr Anderson was appointed consultant urologist to the Dudley Group of Hospitals where he leads a nationally recognised GURS service. Mr Anderson is one of only a handful of surgeons in the country who carry out in excess of 100 urethroplasties (urethral stricture correction) per year.
He is the acknowledged supra-regional expert in this field receiving tertiary referrals from central England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and has lectured both nationally and internationally on BXO/Lichen sclerosis and the management of adult hypospadias problems.
Urology specialist Paul Anderson also holds an honorary contract with the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine, University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, where he operates on servicemen who need his reconstructive skills.
Mr Anderson is one of the highest profile UK urologists within his field, regularly appearing in Channel Four’s Embarrassing Bodies and Live from the Clinic. Our surgical films section provides an online resource of the broadcasts Mr Anderson has appeared in for Channel Four, explaining a range of different urological conditions.
