Capitol Anesthesiology Association, based out of Austin, Texas was established in 1973 and hosts a team of over 80 highly trained professionals, specializing in anesthesiology. All physicians are board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology, or are in the process of obtaining the certification. Many physicians are trained further in areas such as obstetric, cardiothoracic, and pediatric anesthesiology.
Not only are the physicians highly trained and efficient, but so are the nurses. There are over 130 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) dedicated to providing a safe and comfortable experience. There are also RN’s and techs that assist with patient care at Capitol Anesthesiology Association.

General anesthesia is used for more advanced operations, while regional anesthesia is used to manage pain in a specific area of the body, for smaller operations.
