Successful 1st ERAS conference in Colombia

We’re pleased to announce the first ERAS Colombian Symposium, which was packed with local and international (Dr. Adrian Alvarez from Argentina) ERAS clinical experts.

The ERAS Colombia 2017 Symposium was hosted by the XXIV Anesthesiology Course of COLSANITAS Clinics to facilitate local Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) best practices.

In the meeting held in Bogotá, Colombia, anesthesiology and surgery colleagues and nursing, nutrition and physical therapist professionals, provided stimulating presentations on Saturday, February 18.

Topics presented included findings on patients experience and interactive discussions regarding the post-operative care of colonic surgery patients. It was an exceptional opportunity for clinical professionals, key opinion leaders, industry partners and health system administrators, committed to the improvement of perioperative care.
