Mayo Clinic's approach

Your Mayo Clinic team

Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart disease (cardiologists) work as a team with nurse educators, nutrition specialists, exercise specialists, mental health specialists, physical and occupational therapists, and other health care professionals to provide coordinated care for people who are participating in cardiac rehabilitation.

Mayo Clinic offers a Cardiac Rehabilitation Program staffed by an experienced health care team that provides cardiac rehabilitation services for people with several types of heart disease or who have had heart surgery.

Individualized approach

Doctors and other health care professionals at Mayo Clinic provide care for you as a whole person. Doctors take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the care you need. Your health care team will discuss with you your cardiac rehabilitation goals and work with you to design a personalized cardiac rehabilitation plan that meets your individual needs.

Research

Mayo Clinic doctors conduct research in many areas of cardiac rehabilitation. One research study evaluated the use of smartphone-based technology to provide education and track people's habits, such as activity and healthy eating, during cardiac rehabilitation.

Another research study evaluated the use and effectiveness of virtual world-based cardiac rehabilitation, including education and discussions regarding lifestyle changes in a virtual environment.
