Care Philosophy

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 mind 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

Patient Comments (5)
in Golden CO |
Dr. Leonard is a wonderfully skilled, trained and patient surgeon. Our son had a tough conduit replacement and Dr. Leonard took the time to carefully access the situation and performed a fantastic repair that took 4 hours longer than anticipated. He is tireless. Pre, post surgery he was there to tell us about the procedure and to answer any questions we had. He was there everyday to check on our son in ICU. We are lucky to have such a good surgeon in Denver.

Dr. Leonard is very kind and concerned with not only our child but how we are doing. You could not ask for a nicer surgeon. We recommend him 100%.
in Parker, CO |
We have a very medically complex child and Dr. Leonard did a superb job involving 30 hours of open heart surgery to fix our sons condition; He always remained calm and professional and truly cares for the patient and family. He saved our sons life and is the best cardiac surgeon our son has had over the past 19 years.

Dr. Leonard performed open heart surgery on my daughter Lacey 11 years ago at Dallas Children's Medical Center. Lacey has Down Syndrome and had Tetrology of Fallot. Dr. Leonard was the only dr who gave our baby girl a chance to survive. He promised me that no matter what he would make sure I was there with my sweet girl either to say goodbye or to see her start her life with a healed heart. God and Dr. Leonard fixed our sweet girl and she has been perfect and pink ever since. We are so grateful!

He performed open heart surgery on my infant son successfully multiple times, he is a saint! I thank God for him everyday, because without him I wouldn't have my child thriving everyday :) He is the BEST
