The Louisiana State Society of Anesthesiologists represents over 429 active, retired, affiliate and resident member physicians in the State of Louisiana. Membership in the American Society of Anesthesiologists and the Louisiana State Society of Anesthesiologists is federated.

This means you must be a member of one association in order to be a member of the other. Both organizations provide invaluable representation and service to the practice of anesthesiology and pain medicine.




The Louisiana Society of Anesthesiologists Political Action Committee (LSA-PAC) was formed to represent your interests in Baton Rouge and help to establish vital relationships with existing and aspiring Louisiana elected officials. LSA-PAC is a completely separate governed entity from LSA and acts as a nonpartisan committee to support candidates, legislators and statewide officers who understand the challenges of practicing as an anesthesiologist in Louisiana. With YOUR contribution to LSA-PAC, we can ensure that elected officials are educated about the vital role anesthesiologists play in the healthcare arena!
