ERAS or Enhanced Recovery After Surgery is a patient-centred approach and evidence-based intervention that aims to improve both the patient experience and clinical outcomes after elective knee arthroplasty. The ERAS pathway consists of a selected number of interventions divided into those performed preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively. Those interventions demonstrated a better impact on patient outcomes when performed together.
The ERAS protocol or pathway enables the joint replacement surgical team to achieve an outstanding pain control allowing patients to have a painless or near painless experience following knee replacement surgery. The ERAS pathway has also improved functional outcomes and reduced the length of hospital stay in our patients undergoing Knee Replacement Surgery
