Patient Update: Dave Hooper Graduates From Cardiac Rehab!

As many of you know, I encourage all patients to participate in a cardiac rehabilitation program following heart valve surgery. Research shows that the physical and emotional benefits for patients attending post-operative cardiac rehab classes are significant but often under-utilized.

That said, here is a great update from Dave Hooper. (You might recall that I featured Dave in a prior post following his aortic valve replacement surgery.)

In his email, Dave writes to me…

“Hi Adam – I just finished cardiac rehab. I had a really good time. It was a commitment and so I felt obligated to go each time. The team at Advocate Good Sheppard did a great job. I am BACK!!!! Thanks, Dave.”

Congratulations to Dave!!! And, thanks to the cardiac rehabilitation team at Advocate Good Sheppard in Barrington, Illinois.

Keep on tickin!
