Just over nine weeks ago I had a Mako total knee replacement performed by Professor Jari and I cannot thank him enough for making a major procedure a positive experience. After suffering problems for over 7 years, I am now walking with a normal gait and mainly pain free, just the odd niggle as part of the rehab process.
I am walking 2 miles without any aids, cycling for 25 minutes on the indoor bike, and returned to pilates 2 weeks ago (via zoom in the current lockdown), although avoiding kneeling exercises that take the weight on the operated knee. Professor Jari explained thoroughly about the operation, post-op care, rehab and answered all my queries clearly during the consultation process.
The operation went smoothly, and I was home after two nights, moving around on crutches, with minimal pain.
As I continue my rehab with physio help, I am confident that I will be back cycling outdoors, walking in the Lake District, and playing walking rugby before too long.
I would not hesitate to recommend Professor Jari for a Mako total knee replacement or any other knee surgery, having had minor procedures performed by him in the past. A thank you to Jen also for her help and cheery phone calls. Thank you also to all staff at Spire Manchester Hospital.
Once again thank you and if you need a knee specialist, I would recommend Professor Jari for first class care and expertise.
