At Throgs Neck Rehabilitation & Nursing Center, we know how important health care is. That’s why we now offer a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) program. Our team of professionals are trained in the challenges that LVADs present, and offer patients and their loved ones the peace of mind of knowing that they are in good hands.
An LVAD is a mechanical device that helps people when their heart is too weak to pump blood. An LVAD doesn’t replace the heart. It assists the heart in pumping oxygen-rich blood throughout the body so that the organs and muscles can function properly. The LVAD system has parts that work inside and outside the body. Inside, a heart pump is attached to the left side of the heart. Outside, a controller, batteries, and driveline help to power and control the heart pump. Since there are many parts involved in LVAD, specialized care and attention is required for LVAD patients. Throgs Neck Rehabilitation is proud to offer this program to allow LVAD patients care and comfort that goes beyond expectations. If you or your loved one is an LVAD patient, consider the LVAD program at Throgs Neck Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
