About Us

Welcome To Southern Anesthesia & Surgical

Founded by a pharmacist in 1984, Southern Anesthesia & Surgical, Inc. has grown into a national leader in the medical supply industry. We are experts in controlled substances management and are proud to offer all our customers DEA compliance training. From pharmaceuticals to dental anesthesia to emergency response products, you can count on us to deliver competitive pricing, fast shipping and, of course, the best customer service in the business.


Since 2000, we’ve made some exciting changes to our growing business:

In 2000, we moved into our current office and distribution center in West Columbia SC.

We implemented the e222 ordering system in 2010, giving our customers access online ordering of schedule II narcotics. We introduced RX Alerts in 2011 to help our customers stay in front of the difficulties created by shortages and backorders.

In 2014, we opened a new distribution facility in Reno, Nevada, enabling us to provide two-day shipping to customers across the country.

What began as a small company in Columbia, South Carolina, has grown into a successful business with more than 80 employees. But no matter how big we get, we’ve never lost what made us special – the southern hospitality that makes every customer feel like our only customer.
