Dr. Andrew J. Manganaro spent 35 years in the private practice of cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery. He became CMO of Life Line Screening after his retirement from that practice. Dr. Maganaro saw many catastrophic cases of aneurysms and strokes that could have been prevented had the patient and physician just been aware that the possibility was there. He is very excited about the trend of growing awareness of preventive tests and screenings. Persistence and hard work along with having a very talented team is allowing Life Line Screening to help numerous patients start making life style changes and even taking medications before symptoms start progressing and causing health issues. Dr. Manganaro believes in research and scientific publication based on the use of their own database which helps keep the Life Line Screening mission clear.
Life Line Screening’s CMO Dr. Andrew J. Manganaro supervises a panel of board certified physicians who review all the untrasounds and tests done by Life Line Screening. By using a certain set of calculations to determine a patient’s suitability for the screening Life Line is able to offer screenings for patients that may be at risk but do not show any signs of a vascular problem or disease at the time.
They offer a large line of testing that includes non-invasive untrasounds to test for the presence of peripheral vascular disease. Life Line also screens for osteoporosis and does EKG’s for atrial fibrillation which can be a major cause of strokes. Blood tests are also done to determine cardiovascular and other possible abnormalities that the patient may have.
Life Line Screen has been well received and used by both patients and doctors because of the benefits over and above a regular annual physical. They continue to add new tests and preventative screenings to help provide valuable information to the patient and their doctor to possibly prevent a disease or health issue from becoming catastrophic.
