Why is cardiac rehabilitation important?
Cardiac rehabilitation is a monitored and supervised exercise and education program that helps patients with heart conditions resume their normal activities. Rehab is an essential part of cardiac care because it lowers the risk of death and complications for patients who have had heart surgery or experienced a cardiovascular event.
Some of the surgeries and conditions that may benefit from cardiac rehab include:
- Chronic stable angina
- Congestive heart failure
- Coronary artery bypass graft
- Coronary revascularization (angioplasty, stent)
- Heart attack
- Pre- and post-heart transplant
- Severe coronary artery disease
- Valve surgery
We want to improve each patient's understanding of their disease, help them control symptoms by making healthy choices and return them to their highest level of activity.
