About ERAS® Society and enhanced recovery after surgery
ERAS® Society is a non-profit academic society registered 2010 in Sweden. Their mission started already in 2001 when Professor Ken Fearon and Professor Olle Ljugqvist met in London and decided to start a collaborative group for peri-operative care, with its roots in what then was called the ERAS® Study Group. The object of the group was to futher develop ideas introduced in the 1990's by Professor Henrik Kehlet, University of Copenhagen, regarding the concept of multimodal surgical care.
Through its history, ERAS® Society has developed and published numerous evidence-based protocols and implementation programs world wide in order to enhance recovery after surgery. Their international ERAS® World Society Congresses attracts hundreds of delegates from all over the world, the latest been held in Lyon, France in May 2017.
