Interstitial Lung Disease

Most Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) cases are rare. Patients with these disorders need a high level of expertise. Here at Texas IPS, we have a dedicated ILD clinic that includes 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 are 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 do this by focusing on patient care, education and community building here in San Antonio and the great area.

Some of the conditions we specialize in include:

  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
  • Idiopathic interstitial pneumonia
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
  • Lymphangioleiomyomatosis
  • Pulmonary complications of connective tissue diseases
  • Interstitial lung diseases related to tobacco use, environmental, and occupational toxins

Often our physicians are able to diagnosis and manage our patients’ conditions with less invasive treatments and minimizing the use of steroids. For diagnosis, our bronchoscopy team is able to perform both standard and advanced procedures in cases where biopsy is necessary.

We are the only group in San Antonio offering Transbronchial cryobiopsy , which has been introduced as a technique to obtain biopsy samples of lung parenchyma that exceed the size and quality of forceps biopsy samples. We encourage and arrange for Pulmonary rehabilitation for our patients. We also provide our patients with their oxygen therapy, pulmonary function testing, and assessment

For patients with advanced lung diseases, we work closely with the lung transplant centers in San Antonio and Houston to get them closer to answers and next steps.

We also offer a Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group. This meeting is held for patients, caregivers, family and friends of those diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis.

I think Dr. Amalakuhan is a wonderful doctor. He listened to my concerns and he acted on these worries quickly, I’ve had two other doctors and I was never happy. Thank you, Dr. Amalakuhan for checking on my wellness.
