VIDEO: ERAS for minimally invasive surgery


 

Stacy A. Brethauer, MD, FACS, discusses the role of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) in minimally invasive surgical procedures. The goal of the ERAS approach is to minimize surgical stress on the patient, reduce length of stay, and reduce the use of opioids in the recovery phase. Dr. Brethauer discusses a pilot program, the Energy project, which will be conducted in more than 30 institutions for a year to look at an ERAS protocol designed to work with minimally invasive surgical procedures.
