In brief: Sure it can

Modifying your risk factors by changing your diet, exercising, stopping smoking, loosing weight, etc.
Of course can make a difference. The value of preventive medicine should not be underestimated.

In brief: Absolutely

There is a lot of data showing that patients who go through cardiac rehab after a heart attack, heart surgery, or stent do much better long term. The benefits of a good program cannot be underestimated.
Insurance companies are starting to realize this and cover this as a benefit.
