We talk about your diagnosis and procedure, discuss personal risk factors for heart disease and positive effects that lifestyle modification plays in managing your cardiovascular health. Our staff focuses on establishing goals, reconditioning cardiovascular education and risk factor management.
This outpatient phase consists of weekly sessions and is designed for patients with a recent history of Stable Angina, Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA), Coronary Stenting, Heart Attack (MI), Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG), Valve Repair or Replacement and Heart Transplant.
