Knee arthroscopy

After 4 weeks post op and being able to kneel professor Jari advised me to start strengthening every other day alternating between high rep low load and low rep heavier load with a particular focus on single leg strengthening so that I didn’t favour my left leg. I did this up to the 12 week mark. My acute sharp anterior knee pain over the patella tendon graft area had gone after approximately 9-10 weeks after keeping to the advised single leg strengthening programme.

Knee arthroscopy

Anon 9

I was always aware of the next Goal between each visit and knew what I needed to do myself. The benefits of understanding the importance of restoring full knee motion have been key to my recovery. 6 months on from my operation I still kneel every day and hyperextend my knee which gives instant relief following sport and managing swelling. From experience if you don’t do these 2 simple range of motion exercises on the majority of days aching and stiffness will become a major barrier in your recovery.

Ruptured ACL

I would highly recommend Professor Jari if you require an ACL Reconstruction. From the first time I was diagnosed with an ACL rupture I was aware of the plan and what was required to ensure the best possible outcome. Many surgeons I’m aware of use the hamstring graft and combine any possible meniscal repair at the same time. However professor Jari’s preferred method is to prioritise any potential meniscal repair and to restore full range of motion in the knee before undergoing the ACL Reconstruction. His preferred method is using the patella tendon graft as the graft site from the patella tendon will regenerate to 100% whereas the hamstring tendon doesn’t. Although it took almost 7 months to have the ACL Reconstruction following my injury, I felt the preparation beforehand and professor Jari’s use of strict pre op parameters allowed a smoother rehabilitation and return to sport in just under 5.5 months post ACLR. (2 months of this was before I decided to see him, 4 weeks to go through the process of the MRI scan through my cash plan, 2 weeks to then get referred back to my GP for an NHS referral and fill in a cancellation slot for my arthroscopy, 6 weeks until my post arthroscopy review, a further 3 weeks to work towards getting the full knee bend I hadn’t quite achieved and then an 8 week wait until my ACL reconstruction). During this period I worked at strengthening and range of motion exercises regularly in the gym to prepare myself for the ACL reconstruction.

Dear Claire , I am pleased to be able to contribute to the website. I saw Professor Jari in October 2013. I had been suffering with knee pain which was tender to touch and restrictive during but mainly after exercise. Professor Jari examined me , explained what he thought it was and presented me with the options. I chose surgery. On Friday 7th March 2014 at The Spire hospital I had the surgery. Prior to the operation Professor Jari explained what he would have to do , the recovery period and the likely physiotherapy. After the operation I had no pain and within a few hours I was able to exercise the knee. I was given crutches , which I used for the next two days but by performing the directed exercises I was able to walk without them soon after . At my six week check up I was fully mobile with only residual swelling and able to exercise as before but without the pain or restriction. The Professor has a manner which made me feel comfortable and safe and I thank him and his team very much. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others and have already in fact done so to one of my golfing partners.

Hi my grandson Scott Wylie had his right knee rebuilt by Mr Jari on 8th February 2012 after cruciate ligament injury whilst playing football, Mr Jari requested a photograph when Scott had regained full fitness. Scott made his comeback at the start of the 2014 / 15 season where he scored 35 goals and helped his team win the league and cup. He says his knee is stronger than ever and he can’t thank Mr Jari enough for his expertise and his recovery advice which he kept to throughout. During his rehabilitation he was helped by a friend at a fitness centre which has led to him now being self employed as a personal trainer. As a grandparent can I add my personal thanks to Mr Jari it’s great to see my grandson back playing football. Scott is the player in green and sends his grateful thanks.

After recovering and getting the all clear for bowel cancer , I discovered I was still housebound  due to a torn knee cartilage.

I was unable to leave the house without family help as my knee would regularly lock and my regular swimming stopped along with any independence I had vanished.

A simple shopping trip couldn’t be done without my daughters assistance.

On  23rd July Professor Jari operated on my torn cartilage which was a huge success and after one week I was walking around without the use of a walking stick.

Within 6 weeks  now free of pain I am back swimming, actioning my daily walks and have gained my full independence back.

I am extremely grateful to Professor Jari who I call “my miracle man” and the caring attitude of all the staff at the Oaklands Hospital.

I have recommended Professor Jari to several  of my friends who are suffering with knee problems.

Thank you for giving me my Independence back.

A very grateful patient

It was with some trepidation that I went for my first appointment with Professor Sanjiv Jari. I need not have worried.  Such a kind and courteous man, who spent a lot of time explaining what a knee replacement operation entailed.  On every further visit I received the same reassurance.  The operation went well and his wonderful CPM machine made all the difference to my recovery, (I had previously had a knee replacement operation 12 years ago).  His follow up visits were much appreciated and future check-up visits will, I am sure, be met by his charming and courteous manner.

His Practice Manager, Claire, was more than helpful and I think he is lucky to have her.

Having played Judo, Roller Hockey and Rugby over the last 10 years with a recurring knee problem, persevering with the pain, and sometimes locking up, or even giving way we knew it was time to get it sorted out, Having Bupa family insurance and spoke to them about seeing a specialist in this field of surgery.

Professor Jari assessed my 15 year old son Luke, and from the MRI scan and hands on evaluation expertly diagnosed the problem with his knee, he needed an Arthroscopy for a torn Meniscus cartilage in November 2013 at the Bridgewater Hospital, and then a 2nd operation in April this year at the Oakland’s Hospital to reconstruct his ACL, I thought the worst this would be the end of his sporting activates, But the way Professor Jari explained everything about the operation and the problems with Luke only being 15 and still growing and the processes and with the right post-operative treatment, gave me and Luke the trust and confidence that a return to club rugby was possible, it’s so hard watching your team in a county final from the sidelines.

Three Months on he’s now is back in the Gym, pre season weight training with the team 3 times a week slowly getting back to full fitness, but looking good, no pain or problems, now working on his speed and agility and looking forward to playing full contact again in October 2014.

I have to express a big thanks to Professor Jari for his brilliant surgical skills, and Claire for arranging appointments etc, plus the care and support from both hospitals;
Many thanks again

Following severe pain in my foot , I went to see Professor  Jari  earlier this year. I found him sympathetic and caring with regard my problems , which were preventing me from being able to walk. He arranged a scan and X  rays and, as a result, gave a full diagnosis and authorised treatment . I felt confident he was always doing his best to alleviate my painful condition. I would be very happy to see him again should the tendonitis and arthiritis  worsen again.

Thank you
