Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a multidisciplinary, multi-modal approach to perioperative care. Evidence-based medicine is employed to optimize the patient’s pre-, intra-, and post-operative course promoting early recovery while post-op complications and costs are reduced. This conference will also focus on multi-modality pain management which allows for reduction in post-operative opioid use. This proactive approach is evidence-based medicine conducted in a coordinated, integrated and multidisciplinary fashion. 

** Mayo Clinic is now an “ERAS® Society Center of Excellence”, completing an ERAS® implementation program and has qualified as a teaching center for the implementation program, and/or has made considerable contributions to the development of ERAS® for the ERAS® Society. Read the article HERE.
