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 had a complete knee replacement on 8th September in the Alexandra prof Jari did an excellent operation the size of the wound is brilliant and the aftercare I received was excellent thank you
On my 78th birthday, June 2017, I had a knee replacement provided by Prof Jari.Timing was important asIi intend going skiing in January. I feel my recovery has been spectacular. Today, 18th October, I have completed an eight mile coastal walk! 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.

After a number of consultations including Xrays and a MRI Scan and having had the whole procedure with possible associated risks I was booked in for the surgery.On the 6thJune, my 78th Birthday, my replacement knee operation was successfully completed by Professor Jari. From day one, due to good use of analgesics, I was pain free. On the fourth day after the operation I was discharged having been instructed in the use of crutches. After two weeks at home I was walking without crutches. At the end of the two weeks I was able to use an exercise bike. Currently I am performing the exercises as prescribed and biking every day. I am totally pain free taking paracetamol only for post operative soreness. I have got to ascribe the success of the operation to the skill of Professor Jari. The care and management of the whole experience has been amazing. The Surgeon has a well honed machine at his finger tips. Subsequent consultations, dressing changes and physio have all been well co-ordinated. E Di Rollo
I have recently undergone a total knee replacement which was carried out by Professor Jari at Oakland's Hospital. From my first consultation with Professor Jari at which I also had x-ray's done, and my next appointment when the Professor discussed the results of my x-ray's and explained the various options for me to consider, I have been more than satisfied with the way I have been treated. This also includes my operation and the short stay in hospital. I saw the Professor six weeks after the op and he was pleased with my progress,but said that I need to get some more strength in my leg. I have a further appointment in October when hopefully I will be discharged.
