Mr Vishal Pai is a Melbourne trained consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, who provides comprehensive care for all elective and traumatic conditions affecting the knee, with expertise in adult and paediatric ACL surgery and Robotic Knee Replacement.

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 Australasian College of Surgeons in 2017.

Vishal has worked as a consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Box Hill Hospital and The Austin as the lead trauma surgeon where he dealt with both paediatric and adult fractures. His passion for sports knee injuries, including complex ligament reconstruction, saw Vishal move to the United Kingdom to undertake two further advanced Knee Surgery fellowships.

The first was at Southmead Hospital in Bristol, focussing on patellofemoral stabilisation, revision knee replacement and partial knee replacement surgery. The second was in Sports Knee Surgery at the Fortius Clinic in London, working with Mr Andrew Williams, an international expert in the field. It was here that he furthered his expertise in primary and revision ACL reconstruction, multi-ligament knee reconstruction and complex meniscal repair, working with elite athletes to support their return to form and competition.

Vishal was also awarded six months of training in Paediatric Orthopaedics in the United States where he gained expertise in Paediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.
