According to Dr Shetty, for patients who have been diagnosed with heart ailments or even hypertension, it becomes necessary to undergo cardiac rehabilitation. He emphasised the need for a cardiac rehabilitation centre in the treatment of cardiac patients and said, “Ramaiah Memorial Hospital has developed a futuristic cardiac rehab centre which is par with any global cardiac rehab centres.”
The cardiac rehab programme helps reduce the chances of the suffering of a cardiac patient. It aims to limit the risk of psychological and physiological stresses of heart diseases which thereby reduces the risk of mortality.

“This super-speciality addition will give impetus to the cardiac procedures. Ramaiah Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre will go a long way as a futuristic and well-thought process in the high-class treatment of cardiac problems,” he added.
