Cardiac surgery critical care
Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients undergo open heart surgery for various reasons, such as coronary artery bypass, valvular replacements, aortic arch replacements, and heart transplants. Although these procedures provide many patients with a new lease on life, the post-operative recovery period can be a complex, arduous journey.
Our specialized multidisciplinary team of pulmonary, interventional, and cardiovascular critical care physicians provide the highest standard of critical care support and monitoring in the post-operative phase of recovery. We believe that the care our patients receive in the operating room is just as important as the care they receive post-operatively in the ICU. We are available 24 hours a day to meet the needs of our patients and their families. We partner with the best cardiothoracic surgeons, cardiologists, and anesthesiologists to provide this care, following strict, nationally recognized quality guidelines to ensure the best clinical outcomes.

Lung cancer claims more lives in America every year than any other form of cancer. In 2020, 136,084 people died of lung cancer. That’s more than double the next-deadliest cancer—51,869 people died of colorectal cancer the same year.
Dr. Ali Abedi and his team here at Texas IPS were interviewed by SA Live on KSAT 12 on learning how to take a lung cancer risk assessment test. Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and leading killers in both men and women in the United States.
