Mr. Warren Gibson

I found his advice invaluable at the time and despite putting off surgery the advice he gave was useful but more importantly, it was the personal touch that left its mark on me. Mr. Jari discussed at length my options, he gave me his advice and views on how he saw my predicament but even more importantly he listened in full to my own views about how I saw my knee problems. I realised just what a quality person he really is when I arrived at hospital, each and every member of staff was great, friendly, supportive and couldn’t do enough especially when it came to soothing the nerves pre-op. In theater, the staff were brilliant keeping you talking, involved and supporting you. The immediate aftercare was superb, coffee and toast, everyone helpful in fact they couldn’t do enough for me. At my follow up appointment, Mr. Jari was again brilliant. His observations and advice were taken on board and yet again his sole focus was the patient, me, which I found unreal. I am pain-free and I know that at some point in the future I will require a knee replacement and as long as he is still around he is the person who I know I can trust to do it right. So, many, many, thanks you are a gentleman and your staff are a credit. I hope that I don’t see you again but if I do I know that my knee will be safe in your hands.

Amazing! Incredulous! Miraculous! These are just a few of my friends and family comments following the n-STRIDE procedure on my knee. Thank-you so much for changing my life and for doing it with such efficiency and care. It is hard to believe that just 4 weeks ago I could hardly walk at all and that each step I took was with maximum pain. Almost immediately I got some benefit but it wasn’t until 3 1/2 weeks post, what I have to say is an amazingly simple procedure, did I notice just how much a difference it made when I realised I had just gone downstairs in a normal fashion, not the previous stilted version, and felt no pain at all.

Now 4 weeks on I feel I have a ‘normal’ knee. No pain and a full range of pain-free movement. So even though words could never be enough to tell you how grateful I am and how wonderful the n-STRIDE procedure is. THANK YOU.

My initial consultation with Professor Jari was at the Alexandra Hospital in August of 2016 for a full replacement knee.  He explained the procedure to me from start to finish and from this point, I had my full trust and confidence in him. I am 74 years old and I have diabetes, which led to several delays and cancellations however the operation was done in August of 2018. I went in on a Friday morning and I was back home again the following Monday. There were no problems and everything went smoothly. The standard of care shown by all the staff at the Alexandra Hospital was excellent and I continue to have physiotherapy there. I was able to walk without crutches at 9 weeks, there is still some slight swelling and restricted movement within the knee, but I expect this to go soon. I would, without hesitation, recommend Professor Jari to anyone who is considering a knee operation.  I would also like to specially thank the physiotherapy team at the Alexandra Hospital and thank you to Claire, the practice manager, for all her help

I had a knee replacement carried out by Professor Jari in November last year. Previously I had been in crippling pain even though I had had an arthroscopy which proved to be unsuccessful. It was decided that the best solution would be a knee replacement. The result has been life-changing. During my initial appointment, Professor Jari fully explained the process and sequence of events. The treatment and care provided at the Spire were excellent.

Professor Jari was reassuring throughout and filled me with confidence that I could progress by following his advice on exercise and rehabilitation. I am now fully active and have resumed work and am looking forward to the future.

Thanks to Professor Jari and all the staff at the Spire

I attended the Spire Manchester on Friday the 9th March for a total knee replacement procedure by Prof’ Jari.  I arrived at 7am and left on Monday afternoon the 12th March.

From start to finish I can’t speak highly enough of all the staff involved from, reception, to admission on the ward / room.  The catering staff, cleaners, nurses, physio’s etc were all very kind, pleasant and accommodating.  The physio’s and nursing staff were excellent, very professional and efficient.

Prof Jari performed a sterling job on my knee as well.  I am just nine weeks into recovery and all is going really well.  After just two weeks my physio said the knee mobility was far better than she would expect.  I was off the stronger pain relief within two weeks, without the relief the pain was minimal, I’d say there was more discomfort than pain. The range of movement continued to improve and I was able to drive again after just 3 weeks.  After eight weeks I was able to start using a static bike and do some swimming.  I could walk unaided at eight weeks although with a bit of a limp as the minimal swelling still causes discomfort and restricts the full movement.

The scaring is very neat and hardly visible.  I am now at 9 weeks and delighted with my progress.

I decided to go for a knee replacement with Professor Jari in February 2018, as I’m only 60 this was a big decision to make. I had a full knee and patella replacement and a lateral release of the ligaments to hopefully stop the new patella being pulled out of place, the knee operation all went very well. Professor Jari was excellent both with the operation and throughout my post op recovery period. He saw me regularly, arranged extra physio and advised me how to continue on the road to recovery. Then after about 6 months everything took an amazing turn for the better. My new knee is now fantastic and as a result of being so much stronger has also taken pressure off my left knee so that is also now much improved. I am back to mountaineering, cycling and swimming and I’m stronger and fitter than I’ve been for years. Prof Jari and all his team was excellent and it has been very, very well worth undergoing this knee replacement.

After having two knee replacements over a period of two years (both knees) I can’t praise Professor Jari enough. After five years of walking with pain, I am now pain-free and enjoying life to the full again. His help and advice before and after the operations made the recovery period much easier. He has a very nice manner which puts you at ease on your first consultation. I now walk everywhere and play four rounds of golf every week. Thank you, Professor Jari, for giving me my life back.

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.

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 saw 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 the 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.
