Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation Program

The Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation Program is a multidisciplinary approach to preventing the occurrence or progression of cardiovascular disease.

What types of patients are seen in the Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation Program?
The Program staff treats patients for both primary and secondary prevention:

  • Primary prevention is aimed at the prevention of heart and blood vessel disease before an event such as heart attack, stroke or need for cardiovascular surgery occurs.
  • Secondary prevention works with an individual after they have experienced an event such as heart or vascular surgery, angioplasty or heart attack, to prevent further progression of cardiovascular disease.

Who are the members of the multidisciplinary team?
The program brings together the skills and talents of physicians, nurses and other health professionals from a cross section of departments including:

  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • Hypertension
  • Internal Medicine
  • Exercise Physiology
  • Psychology
  • Nutrition therapy

    In bringing these diverse areas together under one program, patients benefit from this comprehensive, multi-specialty expertise and application of the most current, research-based preventive therapies.
    The team works with each patient to reduce risk factors using a thorough assessment (which consists of a physical exam, complete medical and family history and blood work including biochemical and genetic markers) and ongoing follow-up. Risk factors for cardiovascular disease include:
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • High blood pressure
  • Genetic factors
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Uncontrolled stress or anger

What is unique about the Preventive Cardiology and Rehabilitation Program?
The Program specialists work with each patient to design an individualized program specific to their needs and medical condition. The program includes:

  • Cutting edge risk evaluation, including genetic and biochemical diagnostics
  • Individualized exercise prescription, along with a medically-supervised exercise program
  • Computerized data collection and outcomes analyses
  • Multidisciplinary treatment strategies
  • Nutritional counseling based on electronic evaluation of daily food intake
  • Behavioral analysis
  • A variety of group and individual educational opportunities

    Throughout the program, ongoing, regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to ensure progress toward goal achievement. Access to healthcare professionals in-between visits is available if questions arise.

How does the program work with your doctor?
The Preventive Cardiology specialists will complete a comprehensive evaluation and create an individualized treatment plan. They work closely with each patient and their family physician or cardiologist to design a program that fits with their overall health profile. Progress is tracked and this information is reported to the patient and their doctor with each visit.
