Better Recovery After Gynecologic Cancer Surgery

At UVA Health, we use simple science-backed methods to help you recover from a hysterectomy or other gynecologic cancer surgery better. We'll guide your care before, during, and after surgery using the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) approach.

We'll manage your fluid and energy intake. We get you moving and eating sooner than usual after surgery. And an effective and personalized pain-management plan will keep you comfortable. And you won't have to worry about the negative side effects caused by opioids.

With ERAS, you have:

  • Faster healing
  • A quicker return home
  • Fewer problems
