ERAS programs were introduced in the late of 1990s, originated from colon surgery, but have spread to other surgeries including, among others, gastrointestinal, hepatocellular, orthopedic, cardiac thoracic and gynecological surgery. ERAS programs are supported by preoperative, perioperative and postoperative procedures The ultimate goal is to minimize postoperative dysfunction and to enhance rehabilitation [1]. Today, orthopedic surgery remains one of the most common ambulatory and hospital surgical procedures. The concept of ERAS and its increased safety and efficacy in orthopedic surgery is continually being investigated.
Early postoperative mobilization is a fundamental principle of ERAS programs. It has been shown to reduce morbidity and length of stay after major surgery The purpose of the present study is to demonstrate that early mobilization can accelerate the achievement of faster functional recovery, reduce the rate of postoperative pulmonary complications, venous thromboembolism, infections. and they make the surgical patient functionally independent and able to return to their daily routine.
