Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS)
Decrease FontIncrease FontPrintPrint

​In the 1990s, Danish doctor Henrik Kehlet and his surgical team developed the Enhanced Recovery after Surgery pathway. This program has helped thousands of people quickly recover after surgery. It is being used by many countries and surgical teams and we are proud to bring it to patients here in Interior Health. The program aims to speed up your recovery by using methods before, during and after your operation. Some of these methods include:

  • having a pre-operative drink before surgery, 
  • early activity and early eating after surgery, and 
  • making sure your pain is controlled

These steps will help you onto a speedy recovery.
