Although Greater Miami has much to offer visitors as a tourism destination, it is
important to remember that your primary reason for visiting the city is to correct
a medical condition or to renew your health. Therefore it is extremely important
that you follow your doctor’s advice regarding rest and leisure activities. If you
have undergone a triple heart bypass in the last week, don’t expect your doctor

to a slower healing process or even a medical complication. Don’t take any chances
with your health!

chance of complications occurring right after the surgery. If complications do occur,
