Successful recovery after major surgery: moving beyond length of stay.
Repository Usage Stats
There is strong evidence that Enhanced Recovery Pathways improve length of hospital stay, readmission rates, and complications after major surgery. However, recovery is a complex process that only finishes when the patient returns to normal function. Future studies should also address the patient experience, as well as functional recovery and quality of life after major surgery.

Associate Professor of Anesthesiology
Clinical and research interests are Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Medicine; with particular interests in fluid management, and perioperative optimization of the high-risk non-cardiac surgery patient.
Adjunct Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology
Main area of research interest is the role of gut mucosal hypoperfusion in the pathogenesis of post-operative organ dysfunction. On-going projects include: i) the effects of temperature on gut perfusion during cardiopulmonary by-pass, ii) the relationship between cerebral and splanchnic hypoperfusion during cardiac surgery, iii) the relationship between gut mucosal hypoperfusion and outcome in patients admitted for surgical intensive care, iv) the effects of enteral feeding on gut perfusion and
