Jonathan Frappell

After 25 years as a consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Plymouth's Derriford Hospital I can offer a broad experience in all areas of my speciality. 

Although I have always maintained a broad interest across the whole discipline, I developed a particular expertise in endoscopic (keyhole) surgery and am still recognised nationally as a leader in this field. Endoscopic surgery has many benefits for patients, and can be used in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of gynaecological conditions, particularly menstrual problems, endometriosis and prolapse.
 
I also have particular interests in the management of vulval problems, abnormal smears (colposcopy) and related conditions. 
 
I naturally offered a sympathetic approach to my consultancy, tailoring advice and treatment to a woman’s individual needs and wishes and now apply those same skills and knowledge to my medico-legal work. 
 
On a personal note I am married to a nurse and we have four grown up children.
