People are living longer lives after medical treatment or surgery. We are here to ensure that those lives are fit, fueled, and strong to stop reoccurrence or the development of other related diseases
Cardiac Wellness Program
Many patients continue to live with a number of cardiac conditions long-term after surgery or through other means of medical management. This program can be a supplement to care provided by a primary care physician or your cardiologist/cardiac surgeon. Our focus is to expand on aspects of lifestyle medicine that improve on health related quality of life.
Services can include:
· Manage ongoing symptomatology after previous treatment, as well as subsequent late effects related to treatment
· Monitoring for future cardiac events
· Assessment and incorporation of lifestyle medicine issues as an additional focus
· Lifestyle program includes webinars, consultations with a Registered Dietitian and fitness programs run by Clinical Exercise Physiologist and Kinesiologists
· As needed Medpoint will navigate you to other appropriate specialists right on site, which may include Physiotherapy, Paramedical Services, Psychology, others!
