Get Your Heart and Lung Care on The Right Track with the Experts at Roane Medical Center

Cardiopulmonary rehab is the best way to get back on track after a serious heart or lung issue. At Roane Medical Center, our specialized therapists are ready to offer you professional guidance with a personal touch, to safely maximize your recovery. 

The American Heart Association touts the ability of cardiopulmonary rehab programs to help people like you to stabilize, slow, or even reverse the progression of cardiovascular disease. 

Pulmonary rehabilitation is designed to aid patients with lung issues like chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), cancer, and emphysema. It’s been shown to decrease the symptoms of heart and lung disease, while increasing a patient’s ability to function with less shortness of breath.

Just imagine if you could reduce or even reverse the impacts of your heart and lung issues on your everyday life and ability to function? The team at Roane Medical Center is dedicated to helping patients live their best lives.
