Abstract

Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS), initially known as “fast track surgery” (FTS) or “enhanced recovery protocol” (ERP), was originally pioneered in Denmark by Professor Henrik Kehlet, a professor from the University of Copenhagen. Today, this approach has been widely applied in surgery, anesthesia, nursing, and many other professional fields, achieving remarkable results.
