Capitol Anesthesiology Association (CAA) was established in 1973 and now includes more than 80 physicians and 130 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) to provide the highest quality of care at over 20 medical facilities in Austin Texas. All physicians are board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology or are in the process of obtaining this certification. The team of Doctors is assisted by CRNAs and anesthesia technicians to provide a safe and comfortable experience for all patients. CAA is a member of the Anesthesia Quality Institute and exemplifies their mission to improve anesthesia practices through education and data reporting.
Services provided by CAA are General Anesthesia, used to render the patient completely unconscious for extensive surgery; Regional Anesthesia, used to control pain sensitivity for a particular area before or after an operation; Local, used during procedures involving small areas; Pediatric Anesthesia, which required specialized training and certification; Obstetric Anesthesia, to assist with labor and delivery; and Cardiovascular and Thoracic Anesthesia, used in delicate surgeries involving the heart and lungs. CAA’s goal is to ensure each patient is given the best quality of care in both clinical and business activities. The administrative staff works with many insurance companies to make billing smoother.
The staff of CAA are strong supports of the community and continue to donate time and services to underserved areas around the world. Some of the organizations benefiting from this generosity are Austin Smiles, Dell Children’s Surgical Global Outreach, Operation Smile, Family Eldercare, and Children’s Medical Center Foundation.
