Anyone have an idea how to fix this? Should I leave it to a professional?

Personally I'd leave that to a professional unless you have the skills to do it. I give most things a go but draw the line at frame repair.

You don't mention how the frame is constructed , it looks as if it might have titanium tubes
resin bonded into alloy lugs ? in which case it is probably game over unless you want to
get into frame building ! It looks like the bond has failed , and you won't be able to
re-activate the resin by heating it . Its a question of heating all the joints until they
weaken sufficiently to pull the frame apart , followed by a thorough clean up and
re-bond ( preferably in a frame jig ) Good luck

I would think that if you can get the 2 tubes apart then you could use an epoxy adhesive that they use for joining golf club heads to shafts as they must suffer more stress than a bike frame .It would not cost very much to try.

Any chance of a few pics of the repair process?
