Carotid intimal medial thickness is a scientifically researched and proven way to detect and measure the earliest deposits of atherosclerosis before even a plaque has developed. Because it is done with safe ultrasound, the test can be repeated over and over to assess if arteries are getting healthier or more clogged. This is a central part of the Clogged to Clean program.


Although lifestyle is the key to young hearts, genetics can impact metabolism and disease processes.  More and more genetic tests help tailor a personal program of the right diet, supplements, medications, and even fitness.  This is a fast moving area that the Center specializes in.

Endo PAT

This FDA approved measurement device is a radical advance in measuring the health of arteries, whether before or after a stent, heart attack or bypass. Healthy arteries have healthy linings and the EndoPat measures this in about 10 minutes safely. It can be repeated as needed to track aging and health of the vascular system.


Testing for food sensitivities and allergies along with markers of adequate nutrient intake is key to maintaining health no matter what your eating plan.  The Center offers advanced nutrition panels by blood, urine and through the skin to assess if you are receiving all the nutrients you need for healthy aging.

Advanced Labs

The ability to measure advanced markers of cholesterol, inflammation, oxidation (rust), aging and metabolism has leaped forward and provides a great opportunity to provide personalized assessments of risk and health. All major providers will be available to measure your true health and progress over time.

Calcium Scores

Performed at local hospitals, the Calcium CT scan can detect the earliest plaque deposits in the heart years before an event.  Dr. Kahn is a national expert on this topic and the first physician in Michigan to be certified by the SHAPE society.  He specializes in stabilizing and reversing calcified arteries.

office-pic-smallAbout The Kahn Center

How does heart disease develop and progress for YEARS and no one knows until the day a heart attack or death strike? How do stents clog up and bypass grafts shut down without detection? The Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity is focused on diagnosing heart and artery damage at its earliest phase, addressing why it has developed at the root cause, and using all modalities to stop and reverse it. The Clogged to Clean program monitors plaque using CT and a special ultrasound performed only by Dr. Joel. Clogged arteries are reversed with nutrition, supplements, exercise, stress management, sleep counseling, and sauna therapy. The peace of mind knowing that arteries are cleaner than in the past is worth its weight in gold. Let Dr. Joel check your heart and arteries at the only center of its type in the Midwest. Why guess, why not just know the score?
