At CTVS, we believe that the best protection against heart disease is preventing it in the first place.

Four ways to help your heart:

💜 Don’t smoke, or speak with your physician on resources to help you quit.
💜 Eat a healthy diet that is low in sodium, saturated and trans-fats, processed foods, and excess sugars.
💜 Stay active and commit to regular exercise for at least 150 minutes per week.
💜 Manage existing conditions like high blood pressure and cholesterol with your doctor and take medications as directed.

This American Heart Month, we encourage you to focus on your cardiovascular health.

We have many things to be thankful for this time of year, including the volunteer work our physicians and team members do all over the world. CTVS cardiothoracic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey McNeil, and scrub tech, Angel, recently returned from a medical mission trip in Nigeria with the VOOM Foundation. This was Dr. McNeil’s fifth trip to Nigeria and he was extremely proud to work alongside his daughter, anesthesiologist Dr. Ashley McNeil, to perform multiple life-saving cardiac surgery cases.

Thank you to all the incredible medical team members for supporting patients in need!
