Enhanced Recovery Programme

All patients undergoing joint replacement surgery at Mater Private Hospital Dublin have access to our well established Enhanced Recovery Programme which includes the use of enhanced pain control techniques to allow you to get back up and walking within hours of surgery. Early mobilisation with physiotherapy and nursing assistance is fundamental to speedy recovery and reduced complications.

The enhanced recovery approach to surgery is an international, evidence-based approach with proven improvements in clinical outcomes and patient experiences. Research has shown that the earlier a patient is up and walking following surgery the sooner they recover. Throughout your surgery process we provide a variety of resources to support the best possible outcomes for surgery preparation and recovery.

Patient participation in the recovery process is fundamental and you are a very active partner in the journey. The goal is to minimise the physical and mental stress of surgery through a combination of preparation and participation so that you can return to normal, daily activities as soon as possible.
