Interstitial Lung Disease
Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) cases are rare. Patients with these disorders need a high level of expertise. At Texas IPS, we have a dedicated ILD clinic with a highly specialized team of physicians who are experts in ILD cases.
Our physicians understand the complexity and difficulty in getting an accurate diagnosis of ILD. Since diagnosis is so critical for these cases, our program provides state-of-the-art treatment and recommendations to get patients closer to answers and next steps.
Our clinic and program are dedicated to improving the lives of patients with Interstitial Lung Disease. We lead a city-wide multidisciplinary ILD conference with the goal of an expertise in ILD.

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.
