Dr. Andrew Manganaro is on a Mission to Catch Medical Emergencies Before They Happen

Posted on May 5, 2017

Dr. Andrew Manganaro is a busy, hardworking doctor and entrepreneur using modern technology to screen patients for medical weaknesses before they wind up in the Emergency Room.

He spent 35 years as a highly regarded cardiac, thoracic and vascular board certified surgeon in private practice. In his practice he often treated patients with such conditions as carotid embolic strokes and ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms. Those could have been prevented if the patient had known of their risk.

Therefore, when he left his private practice, he became Chief Medical Officer of Life Line Screening. That puts him in charge of quality control. He oversees their panel of board certified experts that review all ultrasounds performed by the company. His mission is to ensure everything the company does is clinically correct.

He’s excited by how the medical community is accepting the screening process. It’s important to identify potential problems before symptoms manifest. That’s when they can be prevented with proper medication and lifestyle changes.

He also oversees their research studies. They have screen over 8 million people, giving them one of the largest such databases in the world. This provides the data for important studies.

With Life Line Screening, patients undergo extensive exams and tests to evaluate their basic health and medical status. The idea is to catch potential problems before they become medical emergencies. The range of procedures Life Line Screening offers goes far beyond the typical annual checkup.

It includes such items as testing for testosterone deficiency, levels of Vitamin D, osteoporosis and bone density, colorectal cancer, carotid artery disease, kidney function, cholesterol, liver function, glucose and diabetes, and atrial fibrillation screening. They then consolidate the results into an individual 6 for Life report that evaluates, based on your test results, your risk for six important medical problems: stroke, diabetes, heart disease, heart failure, lung cancer and chronic pulmonary obstructive disease.
