Cardiac rehabilitation is a program designed to help improve your overall health by identifying and reducing the risk factors that lead to cardiovascular disease. As a participant in the cardiac rehab program, you will work with an exercise physiologist or registered nurse who will help you meet your personal goals.
We have a large team of people who specialize in the various aspects of recovery who will work with you, teach you and instruct you on the best practices for your recovery. Follow up visits in the clinic are as early as one week after heart surgery.
Cardiac surgical patients are cared for from the very start of their visit through the hospitalization and the post-discharge follow-up of our dedicated cardiovascular staff who report directly to the surgical faculty.
