About this book


This volume presents a comprehensive, up-to-date and practical approach to creating an Enhanced Recovery Program for GI surgery. The first sections review the evidence underlying individual elements of Enhanced Recovery Programs, including evidence from laparoscopic procedures when available and pointing to evidence gaps where more research is required. These are written by experts in the field, including surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and physiotherapists. The format is in the style of a narrative review, summarizing the evidence and concluding with key “take home messages” and references. Management of common complications and issues related to patient selection are also addressed. Subsequent chapters address practical concerns, including creation of a pathway team, project management and engaging administration. Experts contribute real-world examples of their pathways for a variety of procedures, including colorectal surgery, bariatric surgery, upper GI and hepatobiliary surgery, enabling the user to have a starting point for creating their own programs.     

The SAGES / ERAS® Society Manual of Enhanced Recovery Programs for Gastrointestinal Surgery will be of great value to fully trained surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses and administrators interested in initiating an Enhanced Recovery Program.
