Meet the Team

This wouldn’t be possible without the wider team. Vicki and Julie run the office, and Alison and Angela provide nursing support. In theatre, Rob works with Patrick Waits, his regular anaesthetist, and Niaz Khan, his surgical assistant. The whole team works closely together to provide a smooth experience for all of the patients that we treat.

Robert Winterton

Consultant Plastic Surgeon

My name is Rob Winterton. I studied Medicine at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and graduated in 2000, ready for the new millennium!

I did my surgical training in Yorkshire, Manchester and Adelaide, before being appointed Consultant Plastic Surgeon in 2014.

I enjoy all aspects of aesthetic surgery, and have a particular interest in body and breast recontouring.

I see lots of patients who have been on a weight loss journey, often operating on patients that other surgeons decline to treat.

I hope to see you in clinic soon!


Patrick Waits

Consultant Anaesthetist

My name is Patrick Waits, but everyone calls me Pach (pronounced Patch)!

I graduated in Medicine from Newcastle upon Tyne University in 1999 and was appointed as a Consultant Anaesthetist in Manchester in 2010.

My clinical work involves anaesthesia for a wide range of adult and paediatric patients, using
general and regional techniques. I have a particular specialist interest in anaesthesia for aesthetic surgery.

I am with you throughout your surgery to look after all aspects of your medical care, ensure your anaesthetic goes smoothly and provide you with excellent pain relief.

Rob and I work closely together before, during and after your surgery to plan for any particular medical needs and to answer any questions you have – please just ask!
