Cardiac Wellness Institute partners with premier hospitals

Cardiac Wellness Institute, established as a pioneer in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation in South India, partners with premier heart care centres like Fortis Malar Hospital and Frontier Lifeline Hospital to make these services widely available to patients.

With the incidence of lifestyle diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol abnormalities, heart attack and stroke rapidly rising, we are joining hands with the public, medical professionals and policymakers to control and cure disease as effectively as possible.

Participants endorse our heart-health workshop

A series of workshops were held recently to increase awareness about prevention of heart diseases by healthy lifestyle. Men and women of all ages and walks of life participated enthusiastically and gave positive feedback.

“We have learnt how to incorporate simple health-promoting practices in our everyday life” said a couple who attended the full-day workshop at Cardiac Wellness Institute in January 2017.

Our work features in leading medical journals

The prevention and rehabilitation programs at Cardiac Wellness Institute have produced excellent results in our patients.

Heart Asia, a leading medical journal of the BMJ group has recently published the outcomes, such as decrease in body weight, increase in exercise capacity and improvement in angina and health related behaviour, in South Indians who followed our programs. This is a landmark study as it is the first scientific evidence showing that a holistic exercise-cum-education strategy works in our population.

Indian Heart Journal has carried two of our publications detailing the importance of prevention programs and intensive cardiac rehabilitation in our country.
