Early recovery after surgery (ERAS) is of growing importance and aims to provide evidence-based recommendations to standardize perioperative processes and improve the quality, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness of surgical care. This survey is designed to assess the current practices in early recovery after instrumented spine surgery for degenerative indications. The goal is to identify key areas of improvement to steer further research and enable better and earlier assessments of new medical interventions and technologies in this field.

The survey will not take more than 10 minutes to complete. Deadline to respond is May 31, 2024. Access survey here.
