Surgical procedures can be the source of much anxiety. In addition such an invasive process can be a great trauma to the body, resulting in pain during and after surgery. To alleviate anxiety and pain, anesthesiologists are routinely included on a surgical team. Anesthesiologists are specially trained and licensed to provide general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, as well as monitored anesthesia care. The Capitol Anesthesiology Association (CAA) offers a wide range of services in specialized areas of anesthesia including pediatric, obstetric, cardiovascular and thoracic anesthesia.
