    Welcome to Texas Society of Anesthesiologists


    It shall be the purpose of the Texas Society of Anesthesiologists to advance, promote and support the practice of the medical specialty of Anesthesiology in the State of Texas.

    The TSA is a voluntary, non-profit association of over 3,800 members interested in the medical specialty of Anesthesiology and it is a component of the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

    TSA provides CME programs; advocates at the legislative, regulatory and legal arenas; and through its representation at the ASA, TMA, and AMA, it insures that TSA’s voice is heard at the state and national levels.

    TSA President Dr. George Williams

    Before beginning I would like to thank my Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus, my wife, Erin and our wonderful children for their love and support. I would also like to thank my department chair and UTHealth leadership team for supporting my efforts at the TSA.

    Isn’t it good to be together for a meeting of the House of Delegates again!  This is the first in-person meeting of the TSA in 3 years… and it is not lost to me that I am the first president to address the House of Delegates in person since my friend and mentor, Dr. Evan Pivalizza did in September 2019.  Dr. David Bryant never had the opportunity to address this house in person.  Dr. Wright addressed this house in person for the first time yesterday.  It is not lost to us that while their work was hard to see, these three former presidents were hard at work for each of us under extraordinarily difficult circumstances and they deserve our gratitude for their sacrifice and leadership.
