About SAS
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.

Our Promise
Even as we continue to expand our services and our reach, we promise that EVERY single customer will always receive the unmatched service and support that make our friendly, knowledgeable customer service representatives the best in the industry.
