Recovery time for angioplasty is pretty minimal.  Assuming that he might get a stent installed or just an artery expanded, more than likely he will have to spend one night in the shop.  Recovery at home usually involves nothing more than taking things very eas for a few days or a week, and then full speed ahead.
