Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS)
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is an evidence-based, multimodal pathway developed to provide standardized care that improves patient outcomes after major surgery. Enhanced recovery pathways are well-defined perioperative programs applying evidence-based interventions in a protocol-like manner designed to standardize the care of the surgical patient in order to improve results and to reduce overall costs including earlier discharge from the hospital after surgery.
