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 was referred to Paul by my physio in November 2018 with a suspected bursitis in the right hip area. X-rays and imaging showed the problem to be far greater, with ischial and trochanteric bursitis and an undiagnosed hip impingement causing labrum and cartilage damage.  The left hip was slightly…

When I was originally diagnosed as having severe osteoarthritis in my right hip back in September 2017 (bone on bone), I was told by my local hospital that a hip replacement at my age (mid-40s) would not be advisable and it was more about me managing my symptoms until I…

My pain was increasing with lack of mobility which was having a huge impact on my general health and wellbeing. I was also unable to sleep at night, get on with every day life, or also enjoy my much loved hobby playing golf. Following my hip replacements my life greatly…

I originally saw Paul as I had what felt similar to a groin strain but turned out to be Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI).  After several scans/MRI I took the decision to have a hip arthroscopy done on both hips despite knowing that it would be a temporary fix and how long…

I first met Paul in 2016 after about 6 years of extreme pain, mis-diagnosed bursitis and a previous arthroscopy to repair a labral tear, all of which resulted in the end of a professional dance career.  Despite having already undergone surgery, I was diagnosed with another labral tear and impingement…

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…

I was referred to Paul Jairaj, Consultant Hip and Knee Surgeon practising at London Bridge Hospital, by the physio clinic I was attending in Sevenoaks. He first carried out a very successful replacement right knee operation in 2016, and then in 2018, following the development of a very painful right…
