Why Work With Us At Sterling Heart Care In Amherst, NY
After ECP Therapy, You Can Get Back to Living Life on Your Own Terms
Heart disease and its debilitating symptoms can wreak havoc on your day to day ability to live the life you want to live. Over 80% of patients who participate in a course of ECP Therapy see a significant reduction in their painful symptoms and a vast improvement in their quality of life.
Increased Ability to Exercise
Individual’s who undergo a course of ECP Therapy see a significant improvement in their ability to exercise. This improvement allows them to get back to all of the activities they weren’t able to do because of their symptoms. Activities like shopping, gardening, playing with children, traveling, or even something as simple as going for a long walk on a beautiful day are no longer a thing of the past!
After ECP Therapy, many patients are able to decrease their dosages or even stop certain medications, like Nitrates and Ranexa, all together. The staff at Sterling Heart Care will assist you in talking to your Referring Provider about adjusting your medication dosages after ECP Therapy. Always consult with a medical professional before adjusting medication dosages.
Reductions in Hospitalizations
ECP Therapy has been shown to reduce patients’ Emergency Room visits and Hospitalizations. Chest pain symptoms are a scary thing. It’s very easy to mistake stable angina (a non emergency situation) with a heart attack (100% emergency situation). By reducing these symptoms, patients are able to stop constantly living under the fear that they may be having a heart attack.
Results That Last
Clinical Research shows that the vast majority of patients maintain their results from ECP Therapy up to 3 years after treatment. Even better, many patients actually see continued improvement, even after ECP Therapy. This happens because our patients are finally physically able to implement lifestyle changes like an exercise program and a healthy nutrition plan. Our staff will provide you with information on healthy lifestyle choices throughout your course of therapy so that you can continue your journey back to health after you’ve completed your ECP Therapy.
Covered by Health Insurance
