About Us

Capital Anesthesia Partners is a privately held, physician-owned anesthesia practice led by an experienced, integrative team of physician and management executives.

Our outpatient-centric anesthesia practice and consulting company was founded in 2011 to solve the unique anesthesia needs of private-practice gastroenterology physician groups by developing an Integrative Anesthesia Solutions model offering management and administration of anesthesia providers.  We also conduct clinical research in order to improve the anesthesia field and provide safer patient care.

Our Providers Are the Highest Quality

We utilize the services of the highest-caliber anesthesia providers. They are professional, highly-skilled anesthesiology specialists (physician anesthesiologists and licensed certified registered nurse anesthetists) who embrace safe-care practices and who partner with our surgical colleagues.  Most of our practitioners have worked with us for more than four years.  We match the clinical needs of our partner facilities with the expertise of our team.
