With up to eighty doctors and over a hundred and eighty registered nurses who cover the field of anesthesiology, the CAA became one of the nation’s top independent practices. CAA, also known as Capitol Anesthesiology Association, has been around for over forty years. They serve a plethora of hospitals and surgical centers around Austin, Texas. Many of their physicians and nurses come from Dell Medical School. The CAA works alongside with Dell Medical and has been helping teach many nurses, medical students and residents as well as paramedics.
CAA’s doctors and nurses are certified or looking to be certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and that enables them to cover the different areas of anesthesia. General anesthesia is one the areas they cover and it involves mainly extensive surgeries. During an operation of a particular area, anesthetists control he pain and feeling during or after a surgery; this is what they call regional anesthesia. They cover Local/MAC anesthesia, which is called twilight sleep for operations that cover small areas. Pediatric anesthesia is for surgeries involving children, and obstetric anesthesia is for pregnancy and delivery. For cardiac surgeries there is an anesthesiologist for cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesia.
They work with a number of health insurances and have many facilities that can be accessed. On their website you’ll be able to find out more about their services. You are also provided with contact information and answers regarding billing too.
