After completing Orthopaedic training in Melbourne Frank undertook a one year Shoulder Surgery fellowship under the supervision of world renowned shoulder surgeon, Professor Charles Rockwood at University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio Texas, USA.

His practice has since focused on the assessment and treatment of shoulder disorders, including:

 -   Shoulder Joint Replacement
 -   Rotator Cuff Surgery
 -   Shoulder Instability Surgery
 -   Shoulder Arthroscopy
 -   Shoulder Sporting injuries
 -   Shoulder Trauma including Fractures & Dislocations

The hallmarks of his practice include discussion of all treatment options with patients, not just surgical. He is always available to discuss cases over the phone with GPs and his patients are allocated generous consultation durations to allow thorough explanations and opportunities for questions. Correspondence to referring doctors follows consultations promptly. Mr Lyons is generally able to see acute trauma cases on short notice.

Surgery is very unfamiliar territory for most patients. As such Mr Lyons makes a point of allocating regular post-operative appointments until such time as the desired result is achieved. He also makes a point of promptly responding to any unexpected issues or anxieties patients might experience after a surgery.
