Consultant Sports Injury Specialist, Manchester: Sanjiv Jari
Consultant Sports Injury Specialist, Manchester: Sanjiv Jari

A Manchester-based orthopaedic sports medicine specialist offering expert diagnosis and treatment for injuries affecting the hip, leg, knee, foot and ankle.

Professor Sanjiv Jari is Consultant Lower Limb and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Surgeon at Hope Hospital, Manchester, and Honorary Clinical Lecturer in Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery at the University of Manchester.  He provides private surgical and non-surgical treatment for sports injuries at The Manchester Sports Medicine Clinic, Spire Hospital Manchester and Capio Oaklands Hospital in Manchester, and BMI The Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle.

A leading sports injury and arthritis clinic in Manchester

A highly experienced sports injury specialist, Professor Jari undertook a Sports Medicine Fellowship at the University of Indiana, USA, following his surgical training in London and Manchester.  He works in conjunction with an upper limb specialist and a sports physician at The Manchester Sports Medicine Clinic to provide a comprehensive service for elite and amateur sports men and women with sports injuries and arthritis. 

Specialising in conditions affecting the lower limb, Professor Jari offers the very latest diagnostic technology and treatment techniques, including KT1000 biomechanical ligament assessment, gait analysis, articular cartilage transplantation, minimally invasive surgery and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections.  His use of accelerated rehabilitation programmes supported by state-of-the-art equipment, often in combination with innovative surgical techniques such as contralateral ACL reconstruction, ensures that his patients are able to return to their sport in the shortest time possible.

Professor Jari offers assessment and treatment for all sports injuries affecting the hip, leg, knee, foot and ankle, including:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
  • Ligament damage
  • Meniscus tears
  • Cartilage damage
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractures and sprains
  • Muscle strains and tears

Expert treatment of ACL tears

Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are very common in sport, and used to be career ending.  Characterised by a swollen and painful knee that seems to get better after a few weeks but continues to 'give way', the condition is often overlooked in casualty departments.

Professor Jari is able to offer quick and accurate diagnosis of ACL tears using MRI scanning and  KT1000 biomechanical knee assessment technology.  He is highly trained in the latest surgical techniques for ACL reconstruction that are designed to provide maximum stability for the knee, whilst allowing for a quick return to sporting activity.  Professor Jari can also offer expert assessment and treatment for other ligament problems, such as posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears and combined ligament injuries that can be difficult to diagnose.

Knee cartilage transplantation in Manchester

The articular cartilage in the knee protects the surfaces of the joint, allowing them to move smoothly over one another.  Traumatic damage, such as that sustained from a sporting injury, is quite common, and once damaged, the cartilage is unable to regenerate itself leaving the bone surface exposed and the joint susceptible to the development of arthritis.  

Professor Jari is among the few orthopaedic surgeons in the UK currently able to offer cartilage transplantation, a cutting edge treatment that repairs damaged articular cartilage.  Using keyhole surgery, a tiny piece of cartilage is removed from the knee joint and then sent to a laboratory where it is cultured to grow more cells.  The cells are then implanted onto the damaged area in the knee joint in a second operation.
