Rocky Mountain Pediatric Heart Surgery

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, MD, 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, Kansas, Montana and Nebraska. Dr. Leonard and our nurse practictioner, Karen Hill, also have experience helping heart patients outside of the US, including traveling to Honduras to assist those in need of heart care.

Our heart surgery services address the wide spectrum of congenital heart conditions and defects, including "simple" atrial and ventricular septal defects and complex anomalies such as hypoplastic left heart syndrome. From diagnosis to recovery, we strive to provide a supportive environment for both you and your child every step of the way .

At Rocky Mountain Pediatric Heart Surgery, your child will always be treated directly from our surgeon and board-certifed pediatric specialists. If your child experiences any complications outside of office hours, Dr. Leonard will be alerted immediately. We are committed to being available around the clock to provide expert pediatric heart care.

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.

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, minds and 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. 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.
