    Ken Anson is a Consultant Urological Surgeon and Reader in Urology at St George’s University Hospitals. He has been providing world class care to urology patients in the United Kingdom and beyond for over 20 years and has introduced many new surgical techniques to help patients who suffer from urological issues such as urinary stone disease, ureteric obstruction and sepsis in his urology practice. He is a high volume surgeon performing ureteroscopy, ureterorenoscopy, laser fragmentation of ureteric stones, PCNL, bladder stone destruction, ESWL on regular occasions. 

    Mr Anson has had a long track record in Urological research and for the past decade has worked with colleagues to deliver a nationally funded research pipeline to answer some of the most important questions in urinary stone disease. The first published trial (the SUSPEND study) has helped change worldwide practice for the benefit of patients.

    Mr Anson is a leading specialist in many urological conditions but foremost is an expert in the diagnosis and treatment of urinary stone disease. However he is also involved in helping patients suffering from blood in the urine, ureteric obstruction, ureteric colic, urinary symptoms, urinary infections, sepsis and benign prostatic diseases. He enjoys a national and international reputation as an Endourology expert and has published extensively in this area. He regularly lectures and teaches at both home and abroad about urinary stone disease and the use of technology to improve patient outcomes.

    Alongside his clinical work Ken has held important management roles including serving as a St George's Divisional Chairman for three years. He has been Secretary and Chairman of the British Association of Urological Surgeons’ (BAUS) Section of Endourology and been a BAUS trustee for 5 years. He is now Treasurer and a Trustee of the British Journal of Urology International charity and works with The Urology Foundation on Endourological projects. He is also an Examiner and Assessor for the Intercollegiate Urology Examination (and examines nationally and internationally) and is the Royal College of Surgeon’s representative on the Intercollegiate Examination Board of Urology.

    In his spare time Ken likes to fly-fish for trout, salmon and sea bass, ski, sail and walk his flat coated retriever Bracken.
