Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The topic of surgery and nutrition is evolving as surgical practice evolves to embrace concepts related to enhanced recovery after surgery. In association with this evolution, novel concepts in nutritional care in surgical patients are being developed and studied, including the use of pre-operative nutrition risk screening and optimization, prehabillitation strategies in patients at risk, post-operative early feeding and mobilization, and enhanced and coordinated surgical care that mitigates complications such as ileus and nausea which may preclude oral intake for patients. In addition, the range of surgeries is broad and ranges from shorter length-of-stay surgeries, such as caesarian section (the most common surgery), to complex, potentially long-length-of-stay surgeries, such as organ transplantation in patients with poly morbidity. These considerations will impact nutrition care in individual patients. This Special Issue of Nutrients aims to address cutting edge advances in nutrition research and care in patients undergoing surgery.
