Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) refers to a philosophy of surgical care that minimizes the physical stress of surgery on your body and returns you to normal function as quickly as possible. The key principles of ERAS are 1) avoidance of prolonged fasting; 2) early ambulation; 3) minimization of opioids, and 4) good prophylactic measures. We want you to return to doing the things you love safely, quickly, and more comfortably.
Below you will find several educational videos to guide you through having surgery on the ERAS pathway in the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
