Austin, Texas is the home of Capitol Anesthesiology Association that has been around since 1973. The group consists of those certified through or actively pursuing certification through the American Board of Anesthesiology. Being able to provide improving quality anesthesia is important to CAA and they are able to move forward towards that goal by being a member of the Anesthesia Quality Institute.
This independent practice consists of over 80 physicians and 130 certified registered nurse anesthetists, who provide anesthesiology services to over 20 different facilities in Austin. The services they provide range from general, regional, pediatric, obstetric, and monitored anesthesia care to help alleviate anxiety and pain before and after procedures.
CAA also helps various outreach programs by donating their time or services to such groups as Operation Smile and Austin Smiles, where they provide surgeries for low-income children with cleft palates and cleft lips. The group also provides needed services to the elderly through Family Eldercare and give resources to abused or neglected children through Partnerships for Children and sees that children in other countries have the opportunity for surgical care through the Dell Children’s Surgical Global Outreach.
