At Stony Brook University Hospital, Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) is a comprehensive care approach that incorporates best practices when you're undergoing surgery. This means using the most up to date information to prepare you for surgery, improve your recovery and get you back to your daily routines sooner.
Our multi-disciplinary team (including anesthesiologists, surgeons, nurse practitioners, physicians, assistants, nurses, pharmacists and social workers) optimizes the care of surgical patients before, during and after your procedure. Overall, ERAS pathways result in higher patient satisfaction, shorter hospital stays and less readmissions to the hospital.
We currently have the following active ERAS surgical pathways at Stony Brook University Hospital, and are continuously adding more:
- Joint replacement (hip/knee)
- Lumbar fusion
- Surgical oncology (pancreas/liver)
- Gynecology (Gynecological oncology, Minimally invasive gynecology, Urogynecology)
- Cesarean Section
- Thoracic surgery (in development)
- Vascular and Endovascular surgery (in development)
