Pulmonary hypertension is a specific type of high blood pressure affecting the arteries in the lungs and on the right side of the heart. As blood pressure builds in the arteries in the lung, the right side of the heart must work harder, which over time can cause it to become weak and fail. If left untreated, the condition can become life-threatening.
While there is no cure for certain types of pulmonary hypertension, symptoms can be reduced, further damage can be prevented, and quality of life improved through swift treatment.
At Texas IPS, our team of trained specialists will work with you to not only treat pulmonary hypertension, but also other medical disorders that may be contributing to the problem, such as obstructive sleep apnea, heart valve problems, and lung conditions.
Treatment for pulmonary hypertension can take many forms, including oral, intravenous, or inhaled medication, blood thinners, and oxygen therapy. Our team will work collaboratively with you to find the best treatment plan for you.

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.
