Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERASÒ) is a multimodal protocol applied to perioperative care. These protocols are implemented by a multidisciplinary patient-centered team, incorporating outpatient clinical staff, nurses, anesthesiologists, post-operative recovery staff, nutrition staff, physical therapists, social workers, and surgeons.
Regardless of the surgical subspecialty, all ERASÒ protocols share the same objectives: preoperative optimization of the patient, reduction of perioperative stress, maintenance of post-operative physiological function, and accelerated recovery time after surgery. ERASÒ protocols are designed to reduce the response to surgical stress, facilitate the maintenance of body composition and organ function to achieve early recovery.
