Disease Specific and Postoperative Recovery Pathways

The Division of Colorectal Surgery has established standardized pathways for the assessment of individual disease conditions and postoperative care. These evidence-based guidelines for best practice are based on careful, thorough analysis of the latest research in colorectal surgery.

All members of the team follow these best practices (management pathways) to minimize variability in care and ensure optimal outcomes.

Our postoperative care pathways promote early recovery and return to activity for patients undergoing surgery.
