Professor Sanjiv Jari
Consultant Knee, Lower Limb and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Surgeon
BSc (Hons), MB ChB, FRCS (Eng), FRCS (Tr & Orth)
I am a Consultant Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Surgeon and an Honorary Professor at the University of Bolton. My interests include keyhole surgery of the knee and ankle, ligament reconstructive knee surgery, cartilage transplantation in sports injuries and early arthritis and knee-cap surgery. In addition to sports surgery, I have a large practice in arthritis surgery and specialise in minimally invasive total and half knee replacements, together with using advanced contemporary non-surgical arthritis treatments including stem cell injections.
We all lead busy lives, so with this in mind I have set up a 'One Stop Knee Clinic' at Spire Manchester Hospital providing quick assessment and diagnosis for any knee problems you’re experiencing. The clinic includes a consultation, a scan if needed and same day results, as well as a bespoke treatment plan, all in one visit to the hospital. A referral letter is not required for self-funding patients. If you have private medical insurance, please contact your insurance provider to check if a GP referral letter is required.
I trained in London and Manchester, following which I worked in the USA for a year at a prestigious sports medicine clinic. I was a Sports Medicine Consultant to the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester and provided cover to the 2001 World Police and Fire Games in Indianapolis. I was also Medical Consultant to the USA Amateur Boxing Association. I currently have been the Orthopaedic Surgeon to the Great British Olympic Wrestling squad. I also look after and work with many elite professional and international teams and athletes in various sports including rugby, football, netball and basketball.
My NHS practice (Salford Royal Hospital – University of Manchester Teaching Hospital) involves lower limb and trauma surgery. I have set up a dedicated knee rehabilitation and triage service in conjunction with specialist therapists, which includes biomechanical ligament assessment using a KT-1000, a tool not generally available in the UK. I am a member of the British Orthopaedic Sports Trauma Association (BOSTA) and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer in orthopaedic and trauma surgery at the University of Manchester. I also am a national and international speaker on knee surgery and sports injuries. I have a number of ongoing research studies in various aspects of lower limb surgery. My research commitment has included supervision of postgraduate doctors undertaking higher degrees. I also regularly supervise medical students, sports rehab students and international medical students and Fellows.
