For over 40 years, Capitol Anesthesiology Association (CAA) has been providing services in Austin and the surrounding area. Since being established in 1973, this team of over 80 highly qualified physicians and over 130 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) has provide a wide range of anesthesiology services to thousands of patients.
The three general classifications of anesthesia consist of General Anesthesia, Regional Anesthesia and Local Monitored Anesthesia Care. Qualified providers offer the administration of anesthesia before, during and after a surgical procedure. Factors that determine which classification a patient falls under may include whether there is a requirement for the patient to be completely unconscious, whether only a certain region of the body needs to be controlled for pain management, and factors such as if the procedure is related to pregnancy or if the patient is a child.
Capitol Anesthesiology Association physicians and CRNAs are active members of the community and use their skills to help those in need. Many of these professionals donate time in under-served areas around the globe. Organizations worked with include Dell Children’s Surgical Global Outreach, Operation Smile, Children’s Medical Center Foundation and Family Eldercare.
