Optimizing Your Surgical Recovery:

Good Habits

Surgical Prehabilitation

  • Prehabilitation is focused on optimizing surgical recovery by ensuring you show up to surgery with the "best case scenario" for healing afterwards

  • This specifically includes optimizing nutrition and minimizing de-conditioning from any illnesses, including the one causing you to need surgery.

  • For major surgery, I will often recommend dietary protein supplementation for at least 1 week before surgery.

  • Optimizing blood sugar control before elective surgery is essential.

ERAS

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery

  • ERAS includes hospital-based processes to assure optimal recovery.

  • These processes are aimed at preventing infections, blood clots, and other complications.

  • The hope is that you will be discharged from the hospital and back to your normal life as quickly as possible when we invest in Surgical Prehab and ERAS.
