Mr Vishal Pai

Orthopaedic Surgeon (Knee, Sports Medicine) @Frankston Private and Holmesglen Private Hospitals

Vishal Pai is a consultant orthopaedic knee surgeon who works at Holmesglen Private Hospital, Frankston Private Hospital and Box Hill Hospital. Vishal completed his medical degree in New Zealand at the University of Otago in 2007 and obtained a distinction in medicine and surgery. Following this, he undertook his orthopaedic training in Victoria obtaining his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons, Australia in 2017. Vishal is also trained to perform robotic assisted partial and total knee arthroplasty and is happy to discuss the benefits of this during your consultation. Robotic guidance uses landmarks from your knee in order to create a digital map which then guides the planning and execution of your knee replacement. The accuracy of this is within 1 millimeter of the digital plan. Whilst the longterm benefits are still being studied, robotic assistance can be a useful adjunct in complex cases or in younger patients.
