A specialist in keyhole surgery of the knee and ankle, ligament reconstructive knee surgery including Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction, cartilage transplantation in sports injuries and early arthritis, knee-cap realignment surgery as well as foot and ankle surgery.
Mr Sanjiv Jari, BSc(Hons), MB ChB, FRCS[Eng], FRCS[Tr & Orth], Ortho Sports Med Fellowship, qualified in medicine from the University of Manchester in 1990.
His post-graduate training was in London, Manchester and the North West of England. Following the completion of his training, he worked in the USA for a year at a prestigious sports medicine clinic treating, amongst other things, injuries in elite and professional athletes.
He was appointed Consultant in Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery at Hope Hospital (University of Manchester Teaching Hospital) in Salford in 2001. In addition he was also appointed as an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at the University of Manchester. He was a Sports Medicine consultant to the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester and also provided cover to the 2001 World Police and Fire Games in Indianapolis. He was also medical consultant to the USA amateur boxing association.
Mr Jari is the Orthopaedic Surgeon to the Great British Olympic Wrestling squad. He also works with many other professional and elite sports teams and players, treating various injuries especially around the knee. He has written articles on Sports Medicine and Injuries in Fighters Magazine.
Mr Jari's NHS and private practice involves lower limb surgery and trauma surgery.
He has set-up a dedicated knee rehabilitation and triage service in conjunction with specialist therapists, which includes biomechanical knee ligament assessment using a KT-1000, a tool not generally available in the UK.
His clinical practice includes keyhole surgery of the knee and ankle, ligament reconstructive knee surgery including Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction, cartilage transplantation in sports injuries and early arthritis, knee-cap realignment surgery as well as foot and ankle surgery. In addition to sports surgery, he has a large practice in arthritis surgery and specialises in minimally invasive total and half knee replacements as well as hip replacement surgery.
Mr Jari has a specific clinical and research interest in ACL reconstructive surgery. He adopts a model of treatment very similar to the one he worked with in the USA including accelerated rehabilitation protocols that allow patients to return to function and sport much quicker than normal.
He is also one of the few surgeons who performs cartilage transplantation surgery in the knee and ankle, a cutting edge procedure not widely available in the UK.
