Enhanced Recovery Programme Following Surgery (Royal Berkshire Hospital)

The Enhanced Recovery Programme has been in place since 2010 and aims to return patients to normal fitness as quickly as possible after the following surgery:

  • Primary Hip or Knee replacement
  • Colorectal surgery
  • Hysterectomy
  • Cystectomy
  • Nephrectomy
  • Prostatectomy

The programme involves active patient preparation for surgery and participation in post operative recovery; until now, information has been given to patients at the time that they attend clinic and there is also an information leaflet available for information and awareness prior to coming in.
