Every 33 seconds, cardiovascular disease claims another life. Cardiovascular disease is the leading killer in Oklahoma for both men and women among all racial and ethnic groups. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and the leading cause of disability. For these reasons and many more, continued advances in cardiology and medical technology as well as continued efforts to prevent and treat heart disease are more important today than ever.
Each year, lung cancer causes more deaths than breast, prostate and colon cancers combined. The best way to prevent lung cancer is to never smoke or stop smoking now. If you currently smoke or have smoked in the past, a lung cancer screening is now available in Claremore that may be right for you.

Osteoporosis is a major health concern for all women. One in three women will develop osteoporosis without medical intervention. The bone densitometer provides a quick, easy assessment of bone density in the spine, hip and other skeletal sites. Our trained physicians can evaluate bone density levels to identify and reduce the risk of fracture caused by osteoporosis in an early stage. Low radiation scans hone in on the most critical areas, and computer software provides a comparative analysis to determine skeletal system health and to evaluate the patient's response to treatment.
