Prof. Winters is able to perform cosmetic procedures in the context of achieving optimal symmetry between the breasts after breast conservation or types of breast reconstructions. This applies to breast augmentation, breast reduction and fat filling techniques. Prof. Winters will invite the collaborations of the most expert plastic surgeons if required on any of these techniques if they involve more complex cosmetic revision procedures. 

All  patients have their recommended treatments discussed within an expert Multi-disciplinary team, involving pathology, radiology, oncology and radiotherapy as well as involving referrals to specialist services such as physiotherapy, pain clinics, psychologists, lymphoedema nurses, breast care nurses, and other supportive practices. Patients are recommended to undergo MRI together with mammography and ultrasound using these specialised imaging techniques to guide accurate biopsies. Other of  the latest imaging techiques are also used to include PET scans.

Discussion around family history and genetric testing will take place if necessary, and based on international guidlelines for testing of the BRCA1/BRCA2 gene abnormalities.

Prof. Winters has established ‘gold standard’ approaches to detecting the sentinel lymph node and in using techniques to measure the results of the lymph node in theatre, thus avoiding unnecessary second surgical procedures to the axillary lymph nodes. The lastest innovations are used.

Prof. Winters provides access to the latest OncoTypeDX genetic testing of breast cancers to help women make personalised decisions on their requirements for chemotherapy after breast cancer surgery. She is a strong advocate of women being given the opportunity to enter all new and available breast cancer clinical trials.
