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, 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. Schedule your appointment today! For more information about heart disease click here.
