Professor Sanjiv Jari is a renowned expert in the treatment of knee joint and muscle problems, with a special emphasis on sports injuries and arthritis. He has been involved in the development and advancement of minimal incision and keyhole surgical techniques and enhanced recovery techniques all of which potentially allow shorter hospital stays and quicker return to function. This is particularly true for the less invasive complete and partial knee joint replacements that he performs routinely.
Thank you Prof Jari for my new, painless knee. I am so impressed with the care I received from you and all the staff at the Alex. Your operation was fantastic and I have had very little pain in my recovery. I will be forever grateful to you. Mrs J Firth, a very happy patient
On 31 October 2017, I had a total left knee replacement under the care of Professor Jari. Professor Jari provided excellent pre operative information and answered all my queries in detail which I found extremely reassuring. Professor Jari and all the medical staff were extremely professional, caring and compassionate throughout my stay in hospital and in their care after I returned home. I feel my operation was a complete success and I am delighted with the results. I cannot recommend Professor Jari and his team highly enough and would like to take the opportunity to say thank you for all they had done for me. D Gittins

I can only say that the care and attention that I had pre and post operational have all ensured that I have todate improved my quality of life. All the pain that I suffered, in going for walks before my operation, is now a distant memory, E Di Rollo
I have suffered with arthritis in my left knee for several years now .. The last year has been completely miserable - I was having to use a mobility scooter as the pain was so bad and my mobility was extremely restricted. I am 54 years old and my doctor was reluctant to refer me for a full knee replacement as I'm quite young for the operation but it gets to a point where there really is no other alternative. Prof Jari was great at my initial consultation at Oaklands Hospital and explained everything to me. It is quite scary as it is a major operation. When I was admitted at Oaklands the staff were great - everything went smoothly with the operation. I was admitted in the morning had my operation and was back in my room by lunchtime - I was discharged two days later. I was warned by the physio's before the operation that I would be in a lot of pain after the operation - I can honestly say that the pain was less than the pain of the arthritis that I suffered with before the operation. It's now eight weeks after the operation and I am walking without crutches and back in work this week. I am not on any painkillers and my movement is so much better than before the operation - I am delighted with the outcome. Top tips if you are considering this surgery - don't expect miracles - it's not like having a healthy normal knee but it's so much better than having an arthritic one. Do your physio - this is an important as the operation - force yourself in those first few days and weeks to do the exercises you will so feel the benefit in the long run. I wish I'd had the surgery earlier - it has improved my quality of life immeasurably and I am extremely grateful to Prof Jari for his calm professionalism and for an excellent outcome.
