Clinic for Surgery

We are constantly on the lookout for improvements for our patients. This is also reflected in the multimodal standardised treatment concept Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS). In German, this means "enhanced recovery after surgery". ERAS stands for gentle treatment during surgical procedures and for your optimum post-operative recovery. It is based on international scientific findings for optimal patient care. The Clinic for Surgery at Zollikerberg Hospital has been ERAS-certified since 4 April 2023.

Your active contribution

An interdisciplinary team consisting of surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses, nutritional therapists and physiotherapists work hand in hand to ensure a speedy recovery after the surgical procedure. However, you play the most important role in this team. You can actively contribute to your recovery in various phases. Among other things, you will receive a diary on admission to hospital. This enables you to document the recovery process and optimise it on an ongoing basis. You can find out more about this in the section "Course of your treatment".

Aims of the ERAS treatment concept

  • Rapid and optimal recovery after the surgical procedure
  • Minimisation of possible complications
  • Rapid return to your normal everyday life

In the following brochure you will find all the details about the ERAS treatment concept.
