Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS): an orthopaedic perspective
Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) is a programme that aims to improve the care of elective surgical patients.

These programmes have gained considerable popularity in orthopaedics recently, however their widespread adoption remains to be seen.
