Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS)

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) helps by getting patients back on their feet more quickly after surgery while shortening hospital stays and reducing complications. 

How we help

ERAS is a paradigm shift in perioperative care, that standardizes care before, during, and after surgery. Drawing from best practices and evidence from around the world, ERAS guidelines have been shown to improve patient care related to nutrition, mobility after surgery, fluid management, anesthesia, and pain control. Importantly, ERAS includes patients as part of the team, by involving them in preparation for their surgery and post-operative recovery. It aims to help patients stay strong, improve outcomes, reduce complications, and create a better patient experience.
