Obstructive Lung Disease
Asthma, Emphysema, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) are the most common lung diseases in the United States. These Obstructive Lung Diseases cause symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, low oxygen levels, and can sometimes lead to hospitalizations. These conditions can severely impact the quality of life of the patients who have them.
At our Obstructive Lung Diseases clinic, we strive to provide state-of-the-art care for patients with these conditions. From diagnosis to management, we provide the most advanced therapies available for the comprehensive care of our patients.
Our goal is to not only preserve lung function, but also improve quality of life so our patients can breathe easier and feel strong.

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.
