Dr. Bhoola on Enhanced Recovery After Surgery in Gynecologic Cancer

Snehal Bhoola, MD
Published: Wednesday, Apr 11, 2018



Snehal Bhoola, MD, assistant professor, Mercer University School of Medicine, associate professor, University of Arizona, Arizona Oncology, discusses enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) in gynecologic malignancies.

The practice of ERAS initially started with a lot of colorectal cancer (CRC) data and studies. Since its advent in CRC, it has been translated to gynecology and gynecologic oncology. There have been several studies in particular looking at patients with gynecologic cancers.

The study reflected significant reductions in length of stay, as well as no difference in readmission rates. There have been studies looking at patients with gynecologic cancers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. There has been a big push for this at this institution; researchers have published a study on how to potentially implement the practice of ERAS.
