Important COVID-19 Notice:

For the safety of our patients and team members, we are making important changes to our Indiana University Health Physicians Primary Care office locations to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Until further notice, there is limited guest access to this location.

Patients are encouraged to come to the appointment by themselves or with one companion. Before entering the building, all people will be screened. If a patient or companion screen positive, the appointment will be rescheduled, and neither will be permitted to enter.

Thank you for your understanding as we do our part to keep you and our healthcare professionals safe and healthy.

Medical & Surgical Treatment

IU Health Saxony Hospital Heart & Vascular Care provides a range of medical and surgical treatments for heart disease. Consult your physician for additional questions and information about preparing for these procedures.

  • Balloon Angioplasty and Stents
  • Cardiac Catheterization
  • Cardioversion
  • Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator
  • Pacemaker Insertion
  • Valve Repair/Replacement

This structured inpatient and outpatient program helps patients with specific cardiac diseases and/or procedures recover more quickly and completely through monitored or supervised exercise programming and cardiac-specific education classes. There is also a phase of the cardiac rehabilitation (rehab) program designed to prevent the occurrence or re-occurrence of heart disease.

Cardiac rehabilitation benefits patients who have recovered or are recovering from heart or vascular conditions or procedures, such as:

  • Cardiovascular disease, angina or heart attack
  • Heart surgery: bypass surgery, valve repair or replacement, aortic aneurysm repair or replacement, heart transplant
  • Interventional procedures, such as angioplasty or stents
  • Heart failure
  • Arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm)
  • Device implants, such as pacemakers or internal defibrillators (ICDs)
  • Other forms of heart or vascular disorders

Patients who regularly participate in the cardiac rehab program can expect to see improvements in:

  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Body weight
  • Functional capacity (activities of daily living)
  • Blood sugar control
  • Mood/depression

Cardiac rehabilitation strives to:

  • Improve your overall heart health
  • Enhance your return to a healthy lifestyle
  • Increase your understanding about your heart or blood vessel disease and treatment
  • Direct you in making the right lifestyle changes to decrease your risk of future cardiovascular problems
  • Increase your ability to perform your job and your daily or recreational activities
  • Provide you and your family with the support and motivation you need to make important lifestyle changes

Cardiac rehabilitation has a three-phase approach that begins in the hospital and continues throughout recovery:

  • Phase I. While in the hospital, our Phase I cardiac rehab staff will direct your early-activity program. We will teach you about the recovery process and tell you how to reduce your future risk of heart problems.
  • Phase II. Soon after you leave the hospital, you can enter the outpatient Phase II cardiac rehab program. The hallmarks of phase II are electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring, close staff-to-patient interaction and weekly education classes. The length of time you participate in the Phase II program will be determined by your rate of recovery and insurance coverage.
  • Phase III. Phase III provides a safe, professionally supervised exercise venue within the hospital; it is appropriate for graduates of Phase II cardiac rehab or individuals seeking to manage risk factors or make a healthy change in their life. Phase III cardiac rehab maintenance programs are not typically covered by insurance; however, we strive to keep our pricing affordable and always cover the cost of your parking when you participate.
