Mr Frost’s Practice focuses on complaints of the hip and knee, offering comprehensive outcome based care to patients of all ages. His special interest is hip pathology in all ages including periacetabular osteotomy and hip preservation surgery.

The location of his Practice in the Hollywood Orthopaedic Group allows easy access to imaging and allied health services. Mr Frost is available for urgent over the phone advice and has developed streamlined protocols to workup patients prior to their initial consultation, thereby providing the most effective management of each patient without the need for multiple visits. His Secretary is happy to facilitate urgent appointments plus single day visits and follow-up teleconferences for rural patients, limiting the need for travel.

Mr Frost undertook his specialist training in Orthopaedic Surgery in Perth.
