Changing the Way People Think about Preventative Healthcare

Many people go to the doctor for an “annual check-up”, or perhaps even only when something is wrong. But that is changing. Technology, research, and individuals such as Dr. Andrew Manganaro have something to do with the changing face of our current healthcare model.

As a cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Manganaro saw cases, such as ruptured aortic aneurysms, that he knew could have been prevented if they were caught earlier. When he retired from his busy private practice, he decided to start “Life Line Screening“, a company which could figure out what people are at risk for, and test them for the diseases that could affect them.

The tests, such as using ultra-sound to measure the abdominal aorta, can detect early stages of problems for clients, before the condition becomes life threatening. Dr. Manganaro has witnessed large numbers of people coming in for tests from his staff, and also says that family practice doctors and vascularists embrace his services. The credibility that the company has earned over the past decade has heartened him and encouraged he and his team on their mission and learn more about Lifeline Screening.

Dr. Manganaro aims to change the way people think about preventative healthcare. He said in a recent interview that “I spent my career in clinical medicine and surgery seeing and treating the sequelae of vascular and cardiovascular disease. Oftentimes, catastrophic outcomes resulted from diseases such as ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms which could have been easily and safely treated had the patient known of the presence of the disease before the catastrophe” and more information click here.

When a disease is caught early, Dr. Manganaro explains, it is much easier to manage or treat it. A patient that becomes aware of an asymptomatic condition can then work with their family doctor to discuss medicine or lifestyle changes that will prevent the disease from progressing. Life Line Screening does not recommend every test for every patient that comes through their doors. Rather, they target the tests to what that patient is specifically at risk for, and go from there and Lifeline Screening’s lacrosse camp.
