The best heart care begins with prevention and early intervention. Improving overall health and wellness can significantly reduce your risk of a first or subsequent heart attack or stroke, as well as the progression of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and obesity. Actively managing cardiovascular risk factors and making lifestyle modifications can positively change the equation for patients with heart disease by helping them live longer and enhancing their quality of life.
The NorthShore Cardiovascular Institute takes a broad spectrum, comprehensive approach to helping our patients achieve optimal health and wellness. Our team is committed to ensuring your cardiac care plan is best tailored to meet your unique needs.
Part of ensuring a healthy heart includes leading a healthy lifestyle. When it comes to heart disease/condition prevention and overall wellness, we often integrate the following services into your care plan:
