Dr. Sweeney began a solo private practice in WheatRidge in 1986, which grew to become Westside Women’s Care. He has been delivering babies and performing surgery at Lutheran Medical Center his entire career.
He was born and raised in Colorado, attended Regis High School, met his wife at CSU, graduated from Creighton University, and completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver. He is board certified and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Sweeney is past chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and continues to serve on committees at Lutheran Medical Center. Dr. Sweeney has been voted one of Denver’s best OB/GYN’s in 5280’s Top Doctors.
Dr. Sweeney’s passion is his practice, wife, four children, and ten grandchildren. They love to ski, ride road and mountain bikes, and spend as much time as possible with their children and grandchildren.
Dr. Sweeney loves OB and delivering babies. He has a passion for helping women deliver vaginally, but when needed, making cesarean sections “family centered.” By making the delivery room atmosphere comfortable and relaxed, delaying cord clamping, and encouraging “skin-to-skin” contact, a cesarean birth becomes a more natural experience.
His gynecologic interests are in all aspects of women’s health, minimally invasive surgery, laproscopic surgery and vaginal hysterectomies. His philosophy is to engage patients in their health care, and to relieve pain and bleeding problems, so they can have the highest quality of life possible.
