Cardiac Rehabilitation and Preventive Cardiology
Mount Sinai’s Cardiac Health Program is designed to help people with heart disease recover faster and lead healthier lives. Rehabilitation is focused on patients with myocardial ischemia other post-operative states. The comprehensive, individualized program goes well beyond exercise and diet to include education, counseling, emotional support, and a growing number of other options. A physician and a nurse direct the program.
Within the CVI, an endocrinologist and a cardiologist with extensive training in preventive medicine and preventive cardiology run a busy Lipid and Diabetes Clinic as part of the Joseph H. Hazen Ambulatory Cardiac Care Center. Each patient is evaluated for the proper diet and drugs for producing optimal cholesterol, triglyceride, and glucose levels. Individual counseling and help with weight loss is included when necessary and desired.
The Cardiovascular Medicine FPA is open from 8am until 6pm, Monday through Friday.
