Dr. Sweeney began a solo private practice in Wheat Ridge 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 Colorado State University, graduated from Creighton University, and completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver. He is board certified and is 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 passions include his practice, wife, four children and ten grandchildren. He loves to ski, ride road and mountain bikes, and spends as much time as possible with his children and grandchildren.
Dr. Sweeney loves obstetrics 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 C-section birth becomes a more natural experience.
His gynecologic interests are in all aspects of women’s health, minimally invasive surgery, laparoscopic surgery and vaginal hysterectomies. His philosophy is to engage patients in their healthcare and to relieve pain and bleeding problems so they can have the highest quality of life possible.
