Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Kenan Deniz's practice at Spire Leeds Hospital currently comprises the full range of general neurosurgical spinal procedures, predominantly on the cervical and lumbar spine. In addition to this, he hopes to develop, a cranial practice at Spire Leedsl in order to manage a wide range of surgical conditions affecting the brain including tumours.

Mr Deniz has been fortunate to have received excellent neurosurgical training prior to his appointment as a consultant neurosurgeon in Leeds. He completed general neurosurgical training at various prestigious units in London, including the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Queen Square, before gaining invaluable Fellowship experience in skull base surgery and neurovascular surgery at The John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and King’s College Hospital in London respectively.

Mr Deniz currently treats the full range of surgical spinal conditions including back and neck pain, arm pain and sciatica. He performs surgery for cervical and lumbar disc prolapses causing nerve or cord entrapment as well as decompressions to release trapped nerves as a result of spinal degenerative disease. He also performs release of trapped nerves in the arm eg carpal tunnel syndrome.

Personal profile:

Mr Kenan Deniz is passionate about his job and neurosurgery in general, both of which consume much of his time.  He therefore makes it an absolute priority that he spends all of his free time with his wife and three young children aged between 9 months and 8 years. 

They enjoy long walks in the countryside, in particular exploring the Yorkshire Dales, foreign travel, eating out at nice restaurants and drinking fine wine. Mr Deniz has also been actively involved with the British Boxing Board of Control as a medical officer and advisor.

Mr Deniz also very much enjoys supporting and encouraging his children with their sporting and leisure activities.
