Valuable information to help you prepare for neurosurgery.
In an effort to provide the best care before, during, and after spine surgery, the Department of Neurosurgery has introduced an evidence-based approach to delivering spine care, called Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS). Through our protocol and Engaged Recovery at Penn (ERAP), we will address your pain, nutrition, movement, surgical site care and educational needs. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality of care across all phases of your surgical journey.
