Dr. Andrew Manganaro attributes his successful yet eventful medical career to his persistence and hard work. He has a pool of medical knowledge obtained from; Phil Beta Kappa where he did Philosophy and Biology and an M.D from New York University. His residency and chief residency in general surgery was done at New York University and Bellevue Hospital Medical Center. It is at the UCLA School of Medicine, where he was attached in research gave him zeal for cardiovascular physiology.
He later on specialized in cardiothoracic and vascular surgery at the University of Rochester from which he received an accreditation in Thoracic surgery. His extensive years of practice in cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery, made him realize that some fatal cases he had dealt with should there have been prior knowledge of these asymptomatic diseases. Life line screening came about to help make treatment easier and more safe.
Life Line Screening is all about offering preventative screening to patient who are asymptomatic and are likely to suffer cardiovascular diseases. In assessing suitability for screening medical experts do non-invasive ultrasound scans on the carotid arteries and abdominal aorta to rule out presence of peripheral vascular disease. In addition, Life Line Screening conducts a gamut of blood tests closely linked to cardiovascular and related abnormalities. It uses marketing campaigns, their database and publication to reach out to the community. Dr. Andrew Manganaro is actively involved in supervising the board of physicians who make decision on such ultra sounds and marketing and is has the role of quality assurance. Currently he is the Chief Medical Officer and National Medical Director at Life Line Screening and chair a panel of Scientific Advisory Network.
