Enhanced Recovery After Surgery
The Clark Memorial Enhanced Recovery After Surgery program (ERAS) is an innovative way to optimize your healing before, during and after surgery. The program involves preparing your body for surgery, a pain control plan to decrease narcotic use, and early walking, eating and drinking after surgery. ERAS helps you take control of your health care and recovery — creating a better surgical experience and a faster recovery.
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery programs have been shown to reduce post-surgical complications by 50% and decrease hospitalization time between 30 – 50%. Our ERAS program was developed with a patient-centered focus as it is meant to make surgery and recovery as short and uneventful as possible.
ERAS was established in Europe and is now practiced in the U.S. at leading medical centers including Duke University and Cleveland Clinic. In 2018, ERAS was named #8 on the Top 10 Medical Innovations by Cleveland Clinic.
