I have known Professor Eden for 30 years, the last 20 years as a consultant colleague. He pioneered keyhole surgery techniques in urology in the UK and is the leading prostate cancer surgeon in the UK with an international reputation. He is a superb technical surgeon and innovated many of the now standard techniques in prostate cancer surgery. If I had prostate cancer Chris is the man I would ask to operate on me and indeed I have recommended him on many occasions to family and friends.
Professor Eden is one of the world's best prostate cancer surgeons. He is an unusually gifted technical surgeon who also possesses exceptional communication skills. His patients quite rightly adore him and he goes above and beyond to look after them. Of all the prostate cancer surgeons in the UK, he is the one I would send my nearest and dearest to.
Chris Eden is one of the most experienced prostate cancer surgeons in the UK having specialised in this area for many years and I have no reservations recommending him to patients. His personal experience in this field is almost without rival and he always continues to develop and improve his surgical skills and techniques for the benefit of patients. I have confidence referring patients to him to achieve the best outcomes from their prostate cancer surgery. He also backs this up with detailed personal information on his own surgical experience and outcomes looking after thousands of patients over a long career of dedicated practice. In addition, his practice is one of the most modern, responsive and technically advanced that I have experienced and his administrative staff are extremely efficient.
