Specialized Help for Improving Heart Health
Cardiac rehabilitation (cardiac rehab) helps patients improve their heart health, lower their risk of future cardiovascular disease, prevent future cardiac surgery, and better engage in daily work and recreational activities.
UT Southwestern’s cardiac rehabilitation specialists work with heart patients to design programs to meet their unique needs and goals. Our multidisciplinary team includes cardiologists, registered nurses, exercise physiologists, physical therapists, registered dietitians, and pharmacists.
By tracking our patients’ progress and encouraging them to continue their rehabilitation efforts, our specialists motivate them to overcome obstacles to better heart health. We closely monitor every patient and order follow-up tests to confirm they are on a steady path to improved cardiac fitness.
