Raising an exception in the caller's frame

Is there any way to raise an exception in the callers (parent) frame?

See the following code, I want the exception to be raised in the 
do_some_work function, without changing this function itself:

def check_result(value):
    if somecondition(value):
        raise ValueError
    return value

def do_some_work():
    value = dosomething()
    return check_result(value)
