New approach to colorectal surgical care speeds recovery and lowers costs
from Healthcare Professionals Network
According to research published online in theJournal of the American College of Surgeons, a new multidisciplinary approach to managing patients’ post-colorectal surgery recovery results in shorter hospital stays, fewer complications, and lower medical costs. Patients recovering from surgery for colorectal cancer are often required to stay in the hospital for up to 10 days, and unfortunately often experience significant pain. As such, researchers at the University of Virginia Health System (UVA-Health), Charlottesville, developed a standardized approach known as enhanced recovery for colorectal surgical care to assuage the complications.
