Mr Gnanamurthy Sivakumar
MBBS, MRCS, FRCS
"Spire is one of the best private hospitals in the Leeds area with friendly staff and clean facilities. The care is excellent to the highest clinical standards."
I am very experienced with neurosurgery management and have a caring and responsible commitment towards my patients and their families. I have a keen interest in research and medical education. I am currently involved in projects in brain tumour management and epilepsy surgery.
I have seen and managed more than 3,000 patients and performed more than 1,000 surgeries.
My infection rate is less than 0.1% and the outcome of my patients is good to excellent.
I trained and qualified in Nottingham as a Neurosurgeon. I did a double fellowship - functional neurosurgery at Walton Centre, Liverpool and then a paediatric fellowship at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London. I worked at the Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham as a consultant for one year, before moving to Leeds in 2013. Since then I have been working at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, providing services of the highest calibre in functional and paediatric neurosurgery.
I am currently enrolled in De Montfort University, Leicester for a Post graduate Certificate in Medical Law and Ethics.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Gnanamurthy Sivakumar at Spire include:

Clinical governance lead for neurosurgery
I am married with a very supportive family. We are blessed with one daughter who is 11 years old. I have a passion for neurosurgery and enjoy my work. I build a good rapport with my patients and staff in the working environment. Being a qualified functional and paediatric neurosurgeon, I am caring about children and families with meticulous clinical management. I am obsessive about my clinical commitments to provide the best care to my patients. I spend a lot of time with my patients to understand their problems and deal with them to the best of my ability. I have a keen interest in research and keep in touch with the latest developments in this field.
Other than neurosurgery, I enjoy listening to music, mostly classical, and spending time with my family. I practise Yoga to keep myself fit and balanced, both physically and mentally.
