Enhanced surgical recovery has moved to the forefront of concern for surgeons, physicians, and hospitals as more effective surgical pre-, peri-, and post-surgery protocols have been developed which improve patient care, minimize patient pain and discomfort, shorten hospital stays, and decrease utilization and related costs. An education need exists to provide authoritative, expert guidance in this area.

Enhanced Recovery for Major Abdominopelvic Surgery is a clinical manual providing detailed, expert guidance on the various components of the enhanced recovery program for major abdominopelvic surgery. Several chapters of the handbook are devoted to overcoming the challenges of implementing an enhanced recovery protocol within a practice or institution. Specific protocols for the most common abdominopelvic surgeries, including colorectal, liver, major gyn, distal pancreas and Whipple’s, and cystectomy are presented. Evidence supporting the protocol is included in each chapter as appropriate. The handbook is targeted to surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and hospital administrators.

This handbook serves as a key educational resource for ASER to provide to those interested in establishing enhanced recovery protocols at their institutions. It is an official publication of the ASER. ASER is a nonprofit organization with an international membership dedicated to the practice of enhanced recovery in the perioperative patient through education and research. It is a multidiscipline and multispecialty society with representations from surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, nurse anesthetists, pharmacists, allied health care professionals, and patient advocates.

“ As far as the scientific content goes, this book is extremely practical and informative. In addition, information on implementation strategies gives this book a unique advantage over other textbooks. The sections on ERAS components are extensively covered, and this book alone provides sufficient information for clinicians planning to initiate ERAS in their hospitals. ”
