The Cost of Heart Disease

February is American Heart Month. You can expect to see many commercials about heart health, including advice on where to go if you have heart problems, and what signs to look for to prevent a heart attack. Unfortunately, the truth is, in America, there is a lot of money that can be made from the effects of this disease.

According to costhelper.com, Heart bypass surgery typically costs about $70,000-$200,000 or more, and heart valve replacement surgery typically costs $80,000-$200,000 or more. According to the United Network for Organ Sharing, the total cost of a heart transplant can reach almost $800,000 or more.

As if the enormous cost alone wasn’t enough, just imagine all the emotional stress any of these procedures or events could create within our lives and the ones we love. Our families deserve so much better, especially when tools are available to help prevent such events from ever transpiring. Preventive imaging gives us this knowledge to live a healthier and longer life.

Here at Advanced Body Scan we also recognize American Heart Month. We understand the importance of your heart health and want to offer you an amazing opportunity to see inside your body without knives, scalpels, ambulances, or crazy high costs. Our goal is to catch your heart disease before it takes a deadly turn. We want to give you the knowledge to understand where your heart health stands at all times!

We offer preventive heart scans for everyone that are read and interpreted by a certified and qualified radiologist. The amount of heart disease we have discovered within these scans is staggering. But what often becomes a scary realization is that the majority of individuals that we find issues in state they felt no symptoms at all!

While we have the tools to give you the information you need, it always seems like people need a nudge to get serious about their health. And often the ‘nudge’ that is required, ends up being a shove that is often unrecoverable. It is time we as a nation got more serious about heart health.

Our hope is that you can see the benefit of preventive scanning before it’s too late. Give Advanced Body Scan a call today at 405-242-1400. For the month of February, we are offering a $47 Heart Scan for you and your spouse. Don’t hesitate, your health may depend on it.

Make Your Health Part of Your New Year’s Resolution

Another new year, another set of well-intentioned, hard to keep resolutions, the majority of which tend to deal with health.

We want to lose, run a marathon, or simply work out every day. We know these things are for the better, however, what is the actual reason we are doing these things?

The reason typically tends to deal with a feeling to start over and do better this year than the previous. It also seems to remind us of our own mortality and how we want to protect and prolong our time for ourselves and those we love.

Now the sad part of resolutions is that about 80% of them tend to drop off before February even begins. The heart is there, we want to change for the better, but changing a routine and essentially a way of life can very challenging.

Here at Advanced Body Scan, we want to offer you a simple and easy to keep new years resolution that has the potential to offer peace of mind results to those who care about their health.

Every week we scan hundreds of people and find things that need to be corrected. The scary thing about some of these cases is that many of these people had NO symptoms and felt great, but upon a heart, lung, or body scan our highly trained doctors found something astronomical that could have taken them away from their families if not dealt with as soon as possible.

Here is the resolution or challenge, if your new year’s resolution has anything to do with health, do yourself a favor and come see us at Advanced Body Scan and get the peace of mind you need to know that your body isn’t hiding anything from you.

Give us a call at 242-1400 to schedule your heart, lung, or body scan today.
