Cardiac Rehab is an outpatient, heart-monitored exercise program for patients who have had a recent heart attack, angina, coronary artery bypass surgery, heart valve replacement surgery, balloon angioplasty, or stent placement. Angina Heart Therapy uses enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP®) to create new pathways around blocked arteries in the heart by expanding networks of tiny blood vessels.
