Helpful Resources for Heart Surgery
Our team of heart specialists begins to prepare you for heart surgery long before you get to the operating room. Our entire team from cardiologists, surgeons, advanced practice practitioners and nurses are in close contact every step of the way.
Our comprehensive guide to heart surgery helps you navigate every detail. We've outlined the procedure and steps you'll need to take in the weeks and days leading up to your surgery. We've done our best to think of everything, so you can feel comfortable with and confident about your upcoming procedure.
Our Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program ensures you get exceptional surgical outcomes and the best possible post-surgical care. ERAS has four foundational goals:
- To empower you through open, honest conversations with your care team.
- To use the best tools and procedures to heal your heart and help you feel better faster.
- To get you moving sooner so you can start to heal sooner.
- To provide you with a structured recovery plan guided by clear, personalized goals.
And your journey doesn't end once you're discharged from our hospital. We'll continue working together through follow-up appointments and through your cardiac rehabilitation program.
You'll learn from experienced doctors, nurses, therapists and dietitians how to maintain a stronger heart and a new, heart-healthy way of life.
