Know Your Score

Many people experience no symptoms before having a heart attack. Knowing your Coronary Artery Calcium Score may help you identify problems before you develop heart attack symptoms. The test detects calcium deposits in the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart. Calcium deposits in the coronary arteries may indicate the development or presence of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). The test is quick, painless and only $100 at BSA. 

You must have a physician referral. To schedule an appointment, please call 806-212-8888. 

TAVR, Amarillo’s most advanced heart valve procedure, is here.

BSA is proud to be the first facility in the Texas Panhandle to offer Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacements (TAVR) to patients, a safe and effective solution for patients suffering from aortic stenosis. More than 2.5 million people ages 75 and older suffer from aortic stenosis, a condition caused by narrowed heart valve. These narrow valves result in the reduction or blockage of blood flow from the heart to the body. This condition can lead to heart failure or disease, the number one killer in America. 

You may qualify for TAVR if you suffer from aortic stenosis. Typically, aortic stenosis is caused from:

  • Calcium deposits in the heart valves
  • Birth defects
  • Radiation therapy
  • Scar tissue in the heart valves caused by untreated strep throat

A physician referral is required. For more information, call 806-212-4668.
