The online resource for navigated knee replacement surgery

Norman Fragle

Retired aircraft engineer Norman Fragle, 83, from Fulwood, Preston, is known to his family and friends as the ‘Bionic Man’ with two replacement shoulders and knees.

Norman deliberately chose computer navigated surgery for his knee replacement surgery and had both knees replaced within six months in 2007.

The operations were highly successful, enabling Norman to complete a dream project with his son to build a 60ft narrow boat.
