Mending Young Hearts

group of kids

At Rocky Mountain Pediatric Heart Surgery, we are focused on providing excellence in pediatric cardiothoracic surgery in an environment that is compassionate and centered on patients and their families.

Our Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeon Steven R. Leonard, M.D., leads our highly trained team in delivering comprehensive cardiothoracic surgical care for all children, from neonates to young adults, throughout the Rocky Mountain region, including Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Nebraska.

Watch how Dr. Leonard was able to help care for a baby from Honduras!

Comprehensive Services

We work closely with pediatric cardiologists, including Rocky Mountain Pediatric Cardiology, and referring pediatricians to provide care to infants, children and young adults. We collaborate with them to determine appropriate evaluation and to formulate a surgical plan.

Our comprehensive surgical services address the wide spectrum of congenital heart conditions and defects, from "simple" atrial and ventricular septal defects to complex anomalies such as hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

As part of the Rocky Mountain Pediatric Heart Center at the Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center, we offer full diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities, in addition to specially trained nursing staff and ancillary services to meet the physical and emotional needs of our patients and families.

Family Centered Care

We understand that when a child is ill, the entire family is affected. So we believe our responsibility is not only to the child, but also to mom and dad, siblings, grandparents and anyone closely involved in our patient's care.

As a team, we've dedicated our hands and minds – even our own hearts – toward creating an environment of health and healing for children with heart defects. This means keeping a family together in the hospital and providing support services to ease the burdens of illness and hospital stays. We also know a child's heart surgery is one of the most emotionally challenging times a family may encounter, so we spend whatever time is necessary at each step along the continuum of care to answer questions with honesty and compassion.
