About Us

The DC Society of Anesthesiologists (DCSA) represents more than 300 physicians and AA’s practicing in the District of Columbia.

The principal goal of the DCSA is to promote the practice of anesthesiology in the District of Columbia.

Our mission is to communicate the scope and value of the anesthesiologist to the public, to monitor and promote public policy to enhance patient care, and to serve as an advocate for anesthesiologists and their patients.

Patient Guide

Your anesthesiologist takes several factors into account when recommending the type of anesthesia. Some of those factors include the type of surgery or non-operative procedure being performed and your medical history.

These types of anesthesia are not always clearly defined, and patients may progress from one level of sedation/anesthesia to a lighter or deeper level during the procedure. For this reason, the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) considers anesthesia a continuum, from light sedation to general anesthesia.
