    TSA President 2023-2024
    Udaya Padakandla, MD

    It is with tremendous humility and a sense of gratitude that I assume the role of Presidency of the Texas Society of Anesthesiologists. It is a great honor to follow in the footsteps of Dr. George Williams II, whose dynamic and overachieving term as President indeed leaves some very big shoes to fill!!   I would consider myself as having succeeded in my term by next year if I could accomplish a fraction of what he did during this year.
