Synopsis

The discussion first covers the evolution of post-operative care protocols, emphasizing the lack of evidence behind traditional post-op restrictions and highlighting recent studies that suggest liberal post-operative activities might lead to better recovery outcomes without compromising surgical results. Additionally, the episode touches on the impact of minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as single port surgeries, on patient recovery times and hospital system efficiencies. Finally, the conversation delves into the shift towards team-based care, where nurses and nurse practitioners actively participate in pre-op counseling, educating patients, and enhancing the overall healthcare team’s efficiency. The overarching theme is the crucial role of evidence-based practice in improving patient care and recovery in obstetrics and gynecology.
