Attack Heart Disease before it Starts

Jul 26, 2008
A strong commitment by Emory University Hospital of addressing heart disease before its development guides patients to a healthier way of life for themselves and the ones they love. As a result, Emory University now offers a comprehensive Preventive Cardiology Clinic at The Emory Heart & Vascular Center.

All those with a history of heart attacks in their family, high blood pressure, obesity, little or no exercise or high cholesterol levels, are very likely candidates at risk of a heart attack. Cardiac rehabilitation is the best form of prevention and is the key to halting the number one killer of Americans. For existing heart patients, cardiac rehabilitation is designed to improve their overall physical and mental functioning. And help them recover quickly.

Emory University Hospital offers various programs available to those who are at risk for heart disease; already have it, or just want to learn more about it. Emory's website provides more information on these programs including classes and other informative links on how one can start getting healthier today. High risk individuals should call 404-778-2850 at Emory immediately to schedule the most important doctor's appointment of their life.

Counseling is an integral part of any successful cardiac rehabilitation program. At Emory Cardiac and Vascular Center, counseling provides the patient with an understanding of heart disease and with ways to properly manage it. Additionally, counseling on the appropriate use of medications and on nutrition is provided.

With counseling, a patient is helped in modifying the risk factors described above, such as high cholesterol, smoking, high blood pressure and others. At Emory Heart and Vascular, programs for patients include lending emotional support, designing an exercise program and supplying information on physical limitations.

Cardiac rehabilitation is not only worthwhile in the prevention of heart disease, but it may also help in managing diabetes, particular types of cancer, osteoporosis in women and even chronic low back pain. Even those who are not at risk may find the information useful for losing weight, boosting energy, and promoting overall good health.

The Emory Heart & Vascular Center is committed to providing clinically excellent cardiovascular patient care, promoting overall heart health, pioneering innovative clinical research, and training the best heart specialists in the world. The Center is consistently recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top heart and cardiovascular health centers in the country. In addition, many of Emory's cardiologists and surgeons are consistently recognized as Atlanta's Top Doctors by Atlanta Magazine and as America's Top Doctors.
