After your coronary artery bypass surgery, you'll have regular follow-up visits with your healthcare team. Expect to schedule visits with:

  • The surgeon. They will check your incisions.

  • The heart doctor. This is to check your health and adjust your medicines.

  • Your heart doctor or primary care provider. See them as often as advised. 

  • A cardiac rehab program. Your heart doctor may advise this. This is one of the best ways to help you get better after bypass surgery.
