LAS VEGAS, NV (PRWEB) JANUARY 24, 2012
Cenegenics® Medical Institute launched a unique Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program this month that sets a new benchmark for preventive health, announced the age management medicine global leader. Partnering with three cardio-diagnostic leaders—Panasonic Healthcare Group, Berkeley HeartLab and Cleveland HeartLab™—Cenegenics created the most advanced program, combining the best aspects of the nation’s top laboratories who screen for cardiovascular disease. No other practice does that.
Cardiovascular disease claims more lives ever year than all cancers, diabetes, Alzheimer’s or accidents, per the AHA’s 2011 Heart Disease/Stroke update. Cenegenics is targeting the disease head on with next generation medicine and an innovative program designed by four experts in the field: Dr. Robert D. Willix, Jr., a former cardiovascular surgeon and Cenegenics’ Chief Medical Officer; and three cardiologists, Dr. George Shapiro (Cenegenics New York City), Dr. Cesar Pellerano (Cenegenics Miami) and Dr. Ernst Schwarz (professor of Medicine, UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine).
“Up until now, Cenegenics has focused entirely on age management medicine and proactive health. Our new Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program with an advanced screening technology is our first endeavor to not only target an illness, but show how our Cenegenics program can reduce the development of disease,” Willix said.
Cenegenics’ Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program is available to everyone, patient or not, and is recommended for a wide age group.
“Can you prevent premature death, a heart attack or stroke? Yes, but you’ve got to know the warning signs. Cenegenics helps you do that with our unique Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program, which includes genetic screening, advanced lipid panels, laboratory markers for plaque formation and assessments for inflammatory markers—a cause of cardiovascular disease leading to tissue damage, organ destruction, shift in the cellular matrix as well as potential blood clots and heart attacks,” Willix said.
