Having returned recently from my holiday I wanted to thank you for your skills and consideration. Thanks to the injection you administered during my appointment on 7 June I was able to enjoy walking again. The relief from the Baker’s cyst seemed miraculous, in fact the only pain I still experience in my knee is arthritic. I can only say you made an immeasurable difference to the enjoyment of my holiday.

You may not remember me, but about 6 years ago you performed an ACL reconstruction of my left knee when I was based in Manchester.

Anyway, I am in Guildford now and thought you might like to know that I am training for the London Marathon this year raising money for Christian Aid – in case it is of interest, I am running a blog and have given you a credit this week on account of it being the 6 year anniversary of the surgery.

I trust that all continues to go well for you – thank you again for your part in making this possible.

I would like to thank Mr Jari for my knee operation before my operation my quality life was severely affected as I could not work very far as the pain was excruciating.  Since the operation was such a success I am now able to move with ease & carry on with my life as normal & I feel I have lost 20 years.

To Professor Jari and all your team in theatre, with grateful thanks for all your kindness shown to me during my recent knee operation.

Professor Jari fitted me with a new knee in early April this year. The Hospital I opted for was the Alexandre at Cheadle and I have nothing but praise for the standard of care shown by all the team there. They were so caring and understanding, so much so that I wrote to the Hospital’s Director singing their praises generally and highlighting 4 members of staff who were “stars amongst stars”. Equally, I have nothing but praise for Professor Jari. I have total respect and appreciation for the professional way he has handled everything from the original consultation all the way through to the post-operative consultations.

At 4 weeks I was able to cope with 1 crutch rather than 2 and at the same time to start walking around my home without any crutch at all. At the 6 week stage I was able to pick up static cycling and using the cross-trainer in the gym at pre-operation intensity. I am now at the 8 week stage and am starting to get out in the open air without any crutches and gradually extending the distance walked. My knee is settling down well and the post-operative pain and swelling I expected was I believe kept to a minimum because of how professionally the operation was carried out.

Professor Jari was objective in his opinions and gave me all the information I needed to reach a decision that I felt was right for me.

To summarise, based on my experience I have zero hesitation in recommending Professor Jari to anyone who is considering a new knee. He is excellent. (April 2018)

I am a 68 year old lady and underwent a total knee replacement as an NHS patient on 7th March 2018 under the care of Professor Jari. I found Professor Jari to be a very particular and exacting surgeon. I followed all of his advice and had no complications throughout the healing process. I did all the prescribed exercises and although they were hard at first, I persevered and they got easier. I recently realised that my knee was not painful for the first time since I was 17. I cannot thank Professor Jari enough and think he is fabulous.

I have no hesitation in recommending Professor Jari and the healthcare and physiotherapy team at Spire Manchester Hospital.

Professor Jari performed a signature knee replacement on my left knee in February 2018. The operation was very successful and my recovery has been incredible. As an added bonus, Professor Jari re-aligned my lower left leg during the operation which had been at an angle of 22 degrees. I have gained 2cm and now walk tall and straight!

As Professor Jari will tell you, it is extremely important that you don’t destroy all his good work and that you must follow the physiotherapy recommended by the staff there. I can honestly say that I did this and the results were incredible.

The best compliment I can give is that after months and years of pain and walking strangely I am now pain free and have even taken up golf which I am enjoying tremendously.

To say that Professor Jari changed my life is an understatement. I felt so emotional meeting him at the 6 weeks review and thanking him for everything that he had done for me. Even then he was modest enough to say that I played my part but without him there would have been no part to play.

I have just had my 6 month review with Professor Jari and we are both very impressed with the progress so he has now signed me off. If I ever need my right knee replaced, I will have no hesitation in returning to the care of Professor Jari. He is easy to communicate with, very professional and clearly a dedicated and skilful surgeon.

Dateline Friday 9th December 2016, The Spire Hospital, Manchester, under the care of Professor Jari and his staff. In for 7 am out at 2 pm Sunday 11th December 2016.

During my stay, my right knee was replaced as agreed. After the operation, I came round to the care of the wonderful staff who medicated me as instructed. I had a knee bending machine (probably got a proper name) in the bed, pressure cuffs on my calves and a routine of exercises as provided by attentive physio staff. The same day I was up on my leg on a frame and the following day, tackled the stairs on crutches.

Prof. Jari came to see me to assure that all had gone as intended. Nursing staff were excellent in manner and care and during my stay, I elicited from them that Prof. Jari’s patients usually recovered more quickly and exited hospital more quickly than others. I know that Prof. Jari is an expert, this is the second time for me in his care.

He is straightforward in his manner, explaining things in detail and in my case patiently answering questions, he is realistic and obviously very experienced but moreover, he is a really nice bloke. I will not hesitate to recommend him to others. Only eight weeks on and back at the gym and in the pool getting stronger.

Thanks, I mean it.

I’d like to thank you for a successful treatment of my knee injury. I have now completely recovered and right now enjoying skiing again in Portillo, Chile (couldn’t wait till next winter…).

Mr Jari asked if I’d send him a photo of me climbing when I was in seeing him about my knee last week. This is on the summit of Cerro Torre in Patagonia with Fitzroy in the background.
