Comprehensive Post-Surgery Cardiac Rehabilitation

After heart surgery at Mercy, you can expect thorough follow-up care that includes:

  • Education for you and your family about your recovery
  • A visit from a member of your surgical team each day you are in the hospital
  • A nurse to help you in the early stage of cardiac rehab, wherever you choose to have it, and to help you make the transition back to a normal routine
