ABOUT

We run a holistic, patient centered practice in Ballito, KwaZulu-Natal. Our aim is for our patients to eventually feel as though they are part of our ever growing family. We try our best to solve the problems our patients are faced with and if we cannot help we make sure to contact someone who can help.

We have a wonderful network of medical specialists as well as allied services that aid in our mission to achieve holistic care.

My patients range from the new born with birth defects, the cosmetic patient looking for subtle improvements in their appearance to those patients who require reconstruction post cancer or trauma.

Our practice ethos is firmly rooted in the serenity prayer:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Karen Holmes

    I cannot praise Dr Trishan Pillay and his staff enough!

    Upon visiting his rooms for the first time, I was very impressed with the patient, calm and obvious confident professionalism in all who I met. It was very reassuring indeed.

    Dr. Pillay always took his time with me, he answers all my questions and never seems to be in a rush to move on to the next patient. I always feel completely satisfied after my appointment. There were no unanswered questions, doubts, or confusion.

    I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome of my surgery and the aftercare that I received from Dr Pillay and his staff was outstanding.

    Definitely my favourite doctor and staff!

    In July 2017 I suffered the rupture of my left Achilles Tendon. An orthopedic surgeon operated and repaired the tendon, but unfortunately I picked up an MRSA superbug which seemingly chewed its way through the tendon, and my heel, and caused a huge hole in my heel. I was then referred to Dr Pillay to repair the damage by plastic surgery. Dr Pillay was, in a word, wonderful. He had to ‘invade’ my foot altogether I think five or six times over three months, and between procedures and after the last one, I was attending his rooms every week where either he or his lovely nurse Kelisha dressed the wound. During some of this long treatment I was on an antibiotic to kill the bug, which was eventually successful.

    Dr Pillay was always friendly and upbeat, which helped lift my spirits as this was a very trying time for me. We exchanged stories about our families, and I can really say that I feel I made a friend and didn’t just find a good doctor.

    One year later my heel is as good as I think it will get. I walk normally. I have to use Vaseline every day on the scar, as it tends to scale quite a lot, due I think to the skin in that area being thin. The scar is getting smaller I am sure.

    Thank you Doctor Pillay. I will recommend you to anyone who might need your skills.

    I met Dr Pillay having broken my leg after many months of efforts to remove a skin cancer which had returned after having been irradiated many years previously. I had been transferred to the Alberlito Hospital from The Bay Hospital Richards Bay because my condition required the services of a plastic surgeon.

    Dr Pillay tried to perform a miracle to save my leg, but this was not to be. He sent me home for a week to discuss all the different possibilities and future prognostics with family and friends. Sadly, on returning to hospital to assess the progress of the mammoth medical intervention by Dr Pillay, the consensus decision was taken to amputate my right lower leg. Dr Pillay and his team performed the operation successfully and post operative treatment and rehabilitation was all put in place. This was when I met Dr Pillay’s staff and became a part of his practice.

    This practice exudes happiness, efficiency and professionalism. Every contact with any of the members of this practice makes one feel confident that everything possible is being done to ensure that a successful and stress free outcome will be achieved. Telephone communications are polite and pleasant, as is the greeting on arriving at the practice. Anything that needs to be done is done efficiently and professionally, but most importantly the feeling that you are the most important patient and your well being is of tantamount importance to each and every member of this practice makes for confident understanding that you are in good hands. On top of all this, the treatment you receive is of such a humane nature that you can only feel better after visiting the practice, no matter the seriousness of your condition.

    I am delighted to admit that my wife and I have become a very happy and satisfied part of this practice and know that we will continue to be a part of it whatever the future might bring.

    I’ve had reason to visit Dr Trishan Pillay twice over a period of the last six months.

    The first time was after I had an accident during which my face was cut with glass in about four places, and the second was when a dermatologist told me to have some suspicious marks excised, one of which was the start of a melanoma.

    On both occasions, I found Dr Pillay to be professional, gentle and caring. I can highly recommend him. He and his anaesthetist make up an excellent team. There is no evidence of any scars whatsoever on my face, as he did an amazing job and I’m very grateful to him.

    I was introduced to Dr. Trishan Pillay in July 2016, having been referred to him by a dermocologist,Dr Ramkisson.

    I found him to be an extremely kind, gentle and understanding Doctor, a value that one needs when an operation is apparent.

    Due to the condition of my skin (misspent youth in the sun) I have been in to theatre 4 times and every graft or incision has left scars barely visible. I have the utmost faith in him.

    Dr Trishan Pillay attended to me during and after a significant procedure to remove a cancerous growth from my left shoulder.

    His supreme professionalism , skill and expertise resulted in a successful excision of the growth and closure of the wound, and guided me throughout the many months of post op recovery.

    I was treated with kindness, patience, empathy and gentleness.

    Trishan took the time to teach my wife to change the dressings, saving many trips of long distances.

    He is a very good listener and no question goes unanswered.

    On visits to his surgery we were always received by his friendly and helpful staff.

    Thanks to Trishan and his team I have recovered the use of my shoulder.
