Are you interested in heart disease prevention? Are you a patient of UR Medicine Heart & Vascular? Or, are you simply concerned about heart disease and want to learn more? If so, you may find many of these resources helpful.
If you’re scheduled for heart surgery at UR Medicine Heart & Vascular, we have some helpful information about what to expect during your hospital stay-and your recovery afterward. Our patient education booklet has instructions for before surgery, after surgery, and discharge, as well as information about the CVICU and Post Cardiac Surgery Unit. You’ll also find rehabilitation instructions and exercises inside.
For some patients, a clinical trial can be an opportunity to receive the most advanced care available. Sometimes, a clinical research study may be the only way to receive a new treatment before it’s been approved for public use. Clinical trials are also a way to benefit others because those trials help medical professionals learn about the best treatments for cardiovascular diseases.
UR Medicine Heart & Vascular is involved in more cardiology research than any other institution in our region, which means we can provide our patients with more opportunities to get involved.
