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.
After many months of physio I self-referred to the KneeDoc. An initial appointment was received within weeks and scans & x-rays followed. Once Professor Jari had a plan to put to me. After suffering with knee issues for 25 years post-rugby, I opted for surgery. The whole process was very smooth and I was in the Manchester Spire Hospital day surgery within weeks. I am now four weeks post-surgery and nearly mended fully. I am pain free and back in the gym; something I haven’t done in a while. Mr A W
I have seen Professor Jari over the years for the management of various knee problems as I have continued to play 11 aside amateur football into my mid 40’s. December 2018 he repaired my cartilage and gave my left knee a ‘clean up’ as this knee had previous ACL reconstruction. 12 weeks post operation I was back in training and played competitively inside 4 months for Styal Football Club in the Mid Cheshire football league. As part of the process he recommended injection therapy using Hyaluronic Acid which was explained as helpful for the early stages of arthritis under the knee cap. I had 5 painless injections and my mobility and strength feels significantly improved. I have noticed the ability to squat and lunge far better than before as my overall my range of movement feels improved and the knee feels as good as I have felt. Whilst noting it is likely time to start slowing down from competitive sport to avoid issues in my 50s, Professor Jari appreciated this remains an important part of my life and prescribed an appropriate course of action that I have been delighted with. As ever Claire has been supportive and provided impeccable care. I intend to have further injections in my other knee to help mobility there too as part of my build up for a masters football competition in Mexico this summer. Thank you Professor Jari and team and for anyone looking for a Knee specialist I would highly recommend seeing The Knee Doc!
Six months ago I underwent a Total Knee Replacement under the care of Professor Jari. I have to admit to some trepidation at major surgery as I am 81 years old, but the care I received was second to none. From first meeting Professor Jari he explained everything to me in detail as what to expect and what I had to do so I was completely prepared as far as I could be. The whole experience went as smoothly as possible and following all the advice I was given I soon began to gain control of my life again. I can not thank Professor Jari enough for what he has done and consider myself very lucky. Barbara Slattery
Following a Total Knee Replacement with Professor Jari we had discussed that my knee would take time to heal as it had with previous surgery on that knee. However timely intervention and expert advice given by Professor Jari, I have finally begun to feel the benefits of a Total Knee Replacement. I am now developing strength in my leg and no longer walk with a limp which is fantastic. It has not been easy, even difficult at times and has taken several months. Throughout that time, I have continued physio exercises and medicated as necessary. With advice from Professor Jari and his team I have learnt to take a step back to go forward and as a result of that I am now making progress and have now resumed sports such as cycling and swimming and continue to make progress and improve my fitness. I would like to say a huge thanks to Professor Jarfi for his excellent surgical skills, guiding me and making appropriate clinical decisions based on our consultations, his patience and wise words. Also, I would like to say thanks to the surgical team and a special thanks particularly to Claire at Knee Doc who has been amazing, so helpful and makes so much happen. I would also like to say a special thanks to Ste at Wolves Physio, for sharing his clinical skills and expertise. Once again, I would like to say thank you and would have no hesitation in recommending Professor Jari and his team. T Gandy
I’d been having a problem with my knee for years and when I finally managed to find the time to get the operation done the big problem was who should I use. The internet is a wonderful tool but sometimes provides too much choice, so to narrow the options down, I decided to look for a surgeon who specialised in Knees and as my original problem had been sport related, someone who had a wide experience of those type of injuries. The Knee Doc stood out in that field. My first meeting with Professor Jari was very clinical and at times I thought he was trying to talk me out of the procedure. In fact he was going through, in some detail, all the aspects that need to be considered before committing to surgery, which I really appreciated. It turned out that I needed a total knee replacement and once I decided to go ahead the whole process was very easy and when I had some admin issues with my insurer, Claire Lawrence was on hand to smooth out the problem and keep the process flowing. Claire was also very helpful in managing the appointments with the various hospital departments. The operation itself went very smoothly, from the introduction to the Anaesthetist, to waking up in recovery, it proved to be relatively stress free. After the op I was lucky to have very little pain and although I did have aches the knee recovered quickly. I did follow the instructions from Professor Jari to the letter i.e. keep on crutches for 4 weeks, wear the support stockings etc…and keep doing the exercises and using the Cryo Cuff to keep the swelling down. My actual operation was on a Friday and Professor Jari made the effort to visit me on Saturday morning and because of a slight complication (non-knee related) he also visited me on Sunday evening which showed real commitment to me as a patient. It’s been eight weeks since the operation now and my knee is getting stronger and more flexible every day, ably assisted by a really good physio which Claire recommended. I did a 4 mile walk yesterday and attend the gym regularly and can see the difference because I have, for the first time in a very long time, had no pain. I would have no hesitation in recommending Professor Jari and his team who certainly provided me with a first class, five star service. Kevin Devine
