Neuro Critical Care
Patients with severe injuries or disorders of the brain and spinal cord require a level of care and experience not seen in even some of the most sophisticated conventional intensive care units. At Texas IPS, our premier neurocritical care unit specializes in treating critically ill patients with neurological diseases and conditions, pursuing all avenues of treatment to improve patient outcomes and improve quality of life.
Our physicians, trained and certified in the treatment of neurological conditions, understand the complexity of advanced neurological care, as well as the need for constant and comprehensive specialized monitoring for some of our most at-risk patients.
Common conditions treated include spinal cord injury, meningitis, coma, acute ischemic stroke, hemorrhage, cerebral edema, transverse myelitis, myasthenia gravis, encephalitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and more.

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.
