Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) & Perioperative Medicine

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery and Perioperative Medicine initiatives are changing the way patients are prepared for, cared for and recover from surgery. Multidisciplinary changes are helping hospitals reduce patient length of stay, lower complications rates, decrease opioid consumption and lower hospital costs while preventing readmissions, increasing patient experience and satisfaction and creating hospital efficiencies.
