In brief: Yes

Cardiac rehab is the most underutilized treatment in cardiology.
Participants undergo exercise reconditioning and education to modify risk factors for coronary heart disease. Not only do people make a more rapid and complete recovery but they are also less likely to have future adverse events. Patients who have had heart attack, angioplasty, stent or bypass or valve surgery are candidates.
