You may be referred to a cardiac rehabilitation program if you are recovering from a heart attack, cardiac surgery, angioplasty, atherectomy or stent placement procedure. You may also be referred if you have angina, congestive heart failure or valvular disease. People with risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and obesity can also benefit from cardiac rehabilitation prevention and maintenance programs.
Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, offers a medically supervised program of exercise and education that will not only help you lead a healthy life after a cardiac event, but will also help you prevent a cardiac episode in the future. We’re a region leader in both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs for those affected with heart failure and other heart-related conditions.
Our professional staff will develop an individually tailored education and exercise program for you based on your medical history and your cardiovascular needs. In addition to rehab programs, we offer ongoing cardiovascular risk management classes that help teach a balance of exercise, nutrition and stress reduction into the lifestyle of those affected with heart disease.
Cardiac rehabilitation is covered by most insurance companies because it is prescribed by your doctor. Patients must be referred by their physician, so ask your doctor today if we can assist you or you in living a safer, heart healthy lifestyle. Some cardiac rehab locations offer an ongoing maintenance program for a small monthly fee.
