Help for broken hearts

For many, suffering a heart attack or other serious health problem is a wake-up call. Heart procedures can ease the symptoms of coronary artery disease, but they alone won't fix the problem.

The good news is, your care team can help you put together a treatment plan that combines medications, rehabilitation, healthy lifestyle changes, and classes that can slow the progression of heart disease — and possibly reverse it.
