Introduction: Preoperative stress and emotional distress have been to be associated with higher complication rates, greater postoperative pain, cognitive impairment, and delayed recovery. ERAS, (Enhanced Recovery After Surgery), is a protocol developed to improve the recovery outcomes of patients undergoing surgery. It is a multimodal approach that includes a combination of preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative interventions that promote rapid recovery to reduce postoperative stress and its effects.
