Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS)
New Patient Appointment or 214-645-8300
Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) programs are designed to help patients return to health more quickly after undergoing major surgery.
In addition, ERAS programs at UT Southwestern are innovative pathways designed to optimize patients’ surgical experience. They were created in collaboration with multiple specialties in order to improve patients’ surgical outcomes and overall satisfaction.
These evidence-based approaches have already been shown to improve pain control, decrease surgical complications, and reduce the amount of time patients need to stay in the hospital.
In these pages, patients can easily learn more about their surgery, such as what to expect before, during, and after their surgical procedure. The information also educates patients about the goals for their surgical experience and prepares them to be active participants in their care.
Patients will find videos describing what to expect during their hospitalization, as well as answers to the most frequently asked questions about ERAS. Patients are encouraged to review the website and videos and reach out to us if they have any questions or concerns.
Educational information is available for a number of procedures, highlighting the important aspects of patient care:
