  • Knowing what to expect before heart surgery 

    Believe it or not, your preparation begins long before you get to the operating room: Through conversations between you and your cardiologists, consultations with your surgeons and phone calls with your nurse.  

    We’ll help explain your procedure and clearly outline the steps you’ll need to take in the weeks and days leading up to your surgery. In fact, you’ll be given a comprehensive guide that helps you navigate every detail, from how to shower to what you can eat before surgery. We’ve done our best to think of everything, so you can feel comfortable with and confident about your upcoming procedure.

    Recovering faster, healthier, stronger 

    Our Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) program was designed to ensure you get exactly what you came for: Exceptional surgical outcomes and the best possible post-surgical care.  

    ERAS was built on four foundational goals: 

    • To ensure you’re empowered through open, honest conversations with your care team. 
    • To get you moving sooner so you can start to heal sooner. 
    • To help you feel better faster with the latest advances in cardiac surgery and breakthrough, innovative pain management strategies. 
    • To provide you with a structured recovery plan that’s guided by clear goals tailored to you. 

    Cross the finish line with cardiac rehab

    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. An important milestone in your journey to a stronger heart, your cardiac rehab program is led by experienced doctors, nurses, therapists and dieticians — all working together to help you build a new, heart- healthy way of life.
