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.
I was first referred to Prof. Jari by my health insurer (Bupa) with osteoarthritis in my big toe. As I am in my early 30's, he recommended a course of treatment that he thought would benefit me most, allowing me to continue to be active, without going down the route of surgery. My health insurer became very awkward at that point and said that as there was no plan to go down the route of having surgery, they would not cover me, as they seen it as a short term fix. This annoyed me massively as I really don't think they should be encouraging surgery when there are other, safer treatments. Prof. Jari wrote to Bupa on my behalf explain the reasons for his recommended treatment, but yet they refused to cover me. To cut a long story short, I brought Prof. Jari's recommended treatment to my doctor, who agreed it was the best course of action, and referred me to Prof. Jari on the NHS. I was seen by Prof. Jari in the weeks after this and had the treatment on my toe and I feel much better and am back to being just as active as I was previous to having issue with my toe, which was the plan from the start, and all of this without having to have surgery. Throughout the whole process Prof. Jari, Claire and the team were extremely professional, friendly and welcoming. More importantly they were knowledgeable and represented my impeccably when I was been asked medical questions by either my Doctor or my health insurer. I would most definitely return for further treatment if the need arose, and recommend them to friends or family. RG
I was introduced to Professor Jari via a friend who has had previous knee surgery carried out by Professor Jari. Professor Jari was extremely professional and reassuring during Consultations – detailing options available to me, i.e. injections, procedures, physiotherapy following procedure, together with anticipated recovery periods. Everything explained to me in great detail – that I could understand! I would recommend Professor Jari to anyone who is experiencing problems with their knees – a caring, calming and understanding Consultant.
Professor Jari had been recommended to me by a family friend who had bilateral knee replacement with a marvellous outcome after suffering for many years. On my first appointment Professor Jari explained knee replacement surgery to me in great detail. I decided that a knee replacement would be the best way forward for me. On a further appointment Professor Jari gave me his reassurance before signing the consent form. I am extremely delighted with the outcome of my surgery. The aftercare I found to be excellent. The physiotherapy team were very good and at one point mentioned that Professor Jari patients always do very well. I am extremely delighted with my replacement knee surgery. On follow-up appointments I always found Professor Jari to be very professional with a charming manner at all times. Professor Jari team are so courteous and his Practice Manager, Claire is a very pleasant and helpful lady. Carol Baison, an extremely satisfied patient.
