Testimonials

Susan McLaughlin-Booth

I wish to convey my sincere thanks and gratitude to Professor Jari for my MAKO Robotic Assisted Total Knee Replacement completed on June 30th. From our initial consultation and discussions, I felt completely confident that I was in safe and expert hands and that I had chosen the “right man for the job”. He listened to my concerns and understood my wish to return to regular exercise. I was offered possible alternatives to the knee replacement surgery, none of which would have given me long-term, pain free mobility. He explained my new knee would require patience and dedication to rehabilitation exercise and that I should go easy on the crutches!! I am now driving, enjoying pain-free walking, and enjoying my pilates and core fitness classes. My days of marathon running may now be over, but I am now pain free and able to cycle and swim which replicates the endorphin buzz I was previously missing. Thanks must also go to Stephanie for her behind the scenes administrative efficiency, to the physiotherapy department, the hospital nurses, the porters and the catering teams. Well Done and Thank You Spire Manchester and to “The Knee Doc” – Professor Jari…and awesome dude.

I first saw Professor Jari in March 2013. He warned me then that my right knee would need to be replaced at some time in the future. On that occasion, he performed an arthroscopy to enable me to return to some form of exercise. I saw him on a number of occasions in the next ten years when he managed my knee with conservative treatment such as physiotherapy and steroid injections. Eventually, I had to see him again in November 2021 due to the pain in both knees. Following scans, it was decided that my right knee would be replaced. Following a Covid scare and a couple of other delays, it was eventually replaced on the 29 April 2022. I was walking fully weight bearing within 24 hours. After the pain from the surgery subsided, which was minimal due to the painkilling drugs, I can honestly say that I have not had a moment of pain in my right knee. I was back driving at around four weeks! I am now able to fully straighten my knee and have about a 140 degree bend in the joint. More than I had before surgery! We then looked at my left knee, which also needed to be replaced. Again, the surgery went well, walking within 24 hours and discharged from hospital after two nights. Again, I have about a 140 degree bend and I am now able to walk long distances without pain whilst I am walking or afterwards. I cannot thank Professor Jari enough for giving me my quality of life back, enabling me to exercise and play with my grandchildren pain free. I could not recommend him any higher if you are having problems with your knees.

The care at the Alexandra Hospital was brilliant. I had meetings with Professor Jari before the surgery in which he answered all my questions and reassured me about the surgery. I was nervous in the run up to the operation, but it was a great success in which I had my left knee ACL reconstruction and MCL repair. After my surgery, I followed the exercise programme Professor Jari and my physio told me to do to strengthen my knee, it was hard work but absolutely worth it in the end and now 7 months post-operation, I am walking and running which I wouldn't have believed if you told me 7 months ago. I cannot thank Professor Jari enough for helping me lead a normal life again.

I had a right knee Arthroscopy in mid-January 2023 to fix a meniscus tear.

The procedure at the Alexandra was done as a day patient and I was home by 3pm. Prof Jari and his anaesthetist both spoke to me pre op and were very reassuring.

The procedure was done first thing and I came to after the anaesthetic feeling unexpectedly good and with no pain at all.

I had no pain post-surgery and did not need any of the pain killers I was given when leaving. Not even paracetamol. The Cryo-cuff around my knee post-surgery worked extremely well. I had little swelling and no discomfort. I was very surprised at how good my knee was feeling.

Prof Jari did a fantastic job and I have been very happily back out running since early June.

I cannot recommend Prof Jari highly enough. Really fantastic job.

I should like to express my gratitude to Professor Sanjiv Jari and the Spire Manchester Hospital for the great care I received in connection with my MAKO robotic-assisted total knee replacement. From my first consultation, through the operation procedure, my stay in this amazing hospital and subsequent physiotherapy and consultant appointments, I received the best treatment from everyone concerned. I can thoroughly recommend Professor Jari, the MAKO procedure and the Spire Manchester Hospital to anyone considering a knee replacement. I have been given my life back.

My MAKO robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery was last October (2022), and following successful recovery and rehab, I’m delighted with the outcome. I cannot praise too highly the care and attention received throughout the whole process from Prof Jari and Stephanie at TheKneeDoc, both pre and post-op. Grateful thanks also to all the staff involved at The Alexandra Hospital for their first class care and expertise.

I had a right MAKO total knee replacement done in August 2022 at the Spire Hospital by Professor Jari. For more than 18 months prior to the surgery I had constant knee pain whilst at work and at home. This resulted in limiting my daily activities. Following specific pre and post op instructions from Prof and the physios, I am delighted to say that within 4 months I was back cycling, swimming and walking pain free. The care received by the whole team was exemplary.

I ruptured the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and damaged cartilage in my right knee playing football. I was referred to Prof. Jari as an NHS patient at the Alexandra Hospital in October 2021.

Prof. Jari discussed my aims and objectives and appetite to return to competitive sports in order to develop the most effective treatment plan. Prof. Jari explained the pros and cons of a variety of different treatments ranging from physiotherapy, keyhole surgery, or a full reconstruction of the ACL ligament using the patella tendon.

I felt reassured and fully informed and decided to opt for the full ACL reconstruction which took place in October 2022. Despite a few cancellations due to Covid-19, both Prof. Jari’s office and the Alexandra Hospital took steps to ensure I was seen as quickly as possible.

I’ve struggled for such a long period of time not being able to carry out the activities I wanted to do. I’m now approximately six months post-op and can already feel the benefits of the ACL reconstruction. I have been referred back to my GP and left in the capable hands of the physiotherapy team at the hospital to continue my rehab. However, Prof. Jari also encouraged me to keep in contact with him and his team should I have any further issues down the line.

On the whole, I’m absolutely delighted with the treatment I have received and would highly recommend Prof. Jari and the Alexandra Hospital for anybody considering a similar procedure.

Dear Professor Jari,

Two years have elapsed since I had n-Stride APS treatment on my right knee.
I am pleased to say that I am able to walk and undertake daily tasks without any discomfort.
For me, this treatment has been a “game changer”.
All thanks to Peter Colhoun for recommending that I visited you for a consultation.
