SSRA ERAS

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Multidisciplinary Symposium with a Focus on the Role of Regional Anesthesia and Multimodal Analgesia

SOLD OUT! No further registrations can be accepted at this time.

Symposium Overview

The Enhanced Recovery After Surgery Multi-Disciplinary Symposium is designed to meet the demand of the anesthesia and surgical communities, to learn how to implement successful ERAS programs for orthopedic, colorectal, and breast surgery with a focus on the role of ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and multimodal analgesia.

Drs. Bowling and Corvo, the nationally recognized co-moderators of the symposium, have led and developed successful ERAS programs, and understand that implementation of an ERAS program requires a multidisciplinary team approach and a goal-oriented functional recovery program. A lack of collaboration between surgeons, anesthesiologists, administrators, and pharmacists, in addition to an absence of appreciation for the critical role narcotic sparing analgesia and regional anesthesia plays is a common stumbling block for ERAS programs. This conference will teach participants the tools needed to overcome these obstacles to ensure successful program development.
