Coronary Artery Disease Treatments

Coronary Artery Disease treatment (CAD treatment) or commonly known as Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) may be initially focused on management of the symptoms. This may include: adopting healthier dietetic habits, performing light exercise daily, and taking medication to ease discomfort, depending upon your physician’s recommendation. When these tasks don’t help improve your condition, your physician may recommend Bypass Surgery, Less Invasive Heart Surgery, or Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery. Every individual recovers differently and the suitable treatment plan for every individual differs, on a case by case basis.
