About Paul

Mr Paul Jairaj is a specialist London Hip Surgeon and specialist London Knee Surgeon leading the way with the most advanced proven treatment options. With fifteen years’ consultant orthopaedic experience Paul has trained internationally and consults in private practice predominantly in Central London and also at the Kent Surrey border.


Paul’s expertise is in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the hip and knee. Whether the ultimate outcome is a non-surgical or minimally invasive surgical route there will always be a multi-disciplinary team approach. Patients can be assured that their care involves all the professionals required to guide them to their optimal health and function.


Paul’s approach is to treat the whole person, not just the injured body part, to ensure return to the goals the patient is currently unable to achieve. Paul offers a spectrum of treatments from injectables to the joint or sub-chondral bone, arthroscopic procedures to preserve or regenerate cartilage, reconstruction procedures for ligaments, and for those with severe joint damage a minimally invasive patient specific joint replacement.


I consulted Paul Jairaj after suffering for  sometime with a painful left knee - it was particularly painful on going upstairs and also after playing tennis. I had spoken to my GP and she had thought better to leave alone but it was deteriorating, so I decided to ask friends…

I am a fit and very active 68 year old who enjoys cycling, golf, distance walking and much gardening. My right hip had given me intermittent pain for some years, but in a few months in 2019 deteriorated rapidly and severely making it painful to walk a few hundred yards,…

I first organised an appointment with Mr Jairaj in the middle of June 2019 to see him for a consultation at the Shard. Upon arrival the facilities at the Shard were brilliant and all the staff were really helpful. In the consultation with Mr Jairaj he took a detailed history…

Further to my operation in December of last year I wanted to drop you a line of thanks. As you are aware, I was having trouble carrying out daily exercise and even found that walking was being restricted by the pain that I was experiencing. I was extremely surprised as…

Paul was recommended to me by my spine surgeon as I had been suffering from pain in my left hip for two years.  I’d previously seen another hip specialist who had diagnosed a small tear in the cartilage around the hip.  However, Paul also flagged that I had a cam…

Excess sport as a younger man combined with advancing age, left me with a “worn out” left knee. I presented to Mr Paul Jairaj in exceptional pain, and barely able to walk. Having had a traditional right-knee replacement some years previously, I thought I knew what to expect. From our…

Dancing in my high heels at my big 50 party I was suddenly struck by the most excruciating knee pain, unable to hold my bodyweight and carried off to A&E! Dependent on my body for work, I was unable to teach or treat my Pilates Rehab clients. Paul swiftly organised…

12 months ago, my knee was affecting my everyday life, literally walking any distance was becoming an issue, let alone my passion for running and cycling - for someone who has always led an active life, this was starting to affect my mental wellbeing. During an 18 month period, I…

My patient experience was excellent from start to finish. Mr Jairaj provided a very balanced and measured view as to the need for surgery and the positive and negative elements – he was never promotional. The operation itself went extremely well and his attentiveness during the hospital stay was terrific.…
