Professional profile

Mr Frame qualified in 2003 from The University of Aberdeen and subsequently undertook his orthopaedic training in the very well regarded west of Scotland orthopaedic training program. During his orthopaedic training he developed an active interest in complex surgery of the knee and trauma. He was appointed as a consultant orthopaedic and trauma surgeon at the University Hospital Southampton. He has had national press coverage on his innovative research in to 3D printing technology in Orthopaedics and the creation of custom implants and guides for improving surgical outcomes.

Mr Frame specialises in all surgery of the knee but in particular complex primary knee replacements, partial knee replacements, revision (second time) knee replacements and soft tissue ligament reconstruction. He has built a specific interest in problems of the knee cap, both for unstable knee caps and for arthritis. This includes an international fellowship with world expert Dr. David Dejour in Lyon, France. He is trained in the surgical technique of trochleoplasty (creation of a new groove for the knee cap) and has combined this with his research in 3D printing to create a model of the patient's knee from scans to help plan surgery and provide the best possible outcome.

Mr Frame is an internationally trained surgeon, having completed multiple fellowships in trauma and knee surgery. These include: Zimmer Orthopaedic Knee Fellowship - University Hospital Southampton - Prof D. Barrett, Mr P Chapman-Sheath Royal College of Physician & Surgeon of Glasgow International Traveling Fellowship Award - Complex Trauma - Parkland Hospital, Dallas, Texas - Prof Adam Starr.
