Enhanced Recovery after Major Gastrointestinal Surgery, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols promote standardized perioperative care, which ultimately improves the quality of care delivered, accelerates recovery and safety, and optimizes the use of healthcare resources. This project, initiated by the departments of Surgical Oncology and Anesthesia for major pancreatic surgeries, has been expanded with the input of urology residents and faculty to include patients undergoing cystectomy, retroperitoneal lymph node dissection, and open nephrectomy. Data collection and outcome analysis are ongoing.
