Mr Frame is an internationally fellowship trained pure knee surgeon, meaning he is highly specialised, solely focusing on complex problems of the knee. He has a particular specialist interest in minimally invasive solutions for sports injuries and osteoarthritis. This includes the 'Arthrex All Inside' anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction requiring no screws and only one hamstring. The revolutionary Arthrex NanoScope with a tiny 2mm camera for small joints and childres knees. He is also able to offer partial knee resurfacing rather than full total knee replacement in nearly half of his patients with degenerate osteoarthritis. Improving outcomes minimising pain and getting patients back on their feet faster. Mr Frame is performing above average in the National Joint Registry (NJR) for partial knee replacement/resurfacing including patellofemoral resurfacing (kneecap). 40% of the 100 joint surgeries a year he does being partial rather than total replacements.
He provides a tertiary service for the wider region in complex patellar instability (knee cap dislocation), including medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction, tibial tubercle osteotomy (TTO), derotation osteotomy and 3D printed assisted recreation of the knee cap groove (trochleoplasty).

From the minute I walked in to the hospital I knew I was in good hands, from the kind receptionist, and Sophie, Mr Frame's PA, who couldn't have been more helpful, to Dr Sparkes and the incredibly kind nursing team on the ward of the Spire Hospital. I was scared but you all put me at ease and made it a pleasure. Send my best wishes to the whole team.
I can't thank Mr Frame and his fantastic team enough for giving me my life back with my new partial knee replacement. I can now walk for as long as I want. It has been life changing!
I was running out of hope with my knee dislocations, no one seemed to listen or was willing to help me until I came to see Mr Frame. He took the time to really listen to me and did fantastic surgery. Finally, after nearly 15 years of worry and pain, I can start living my life without thinking about my knees! Thanks to you all.
