Research subject

The research group studies and evaluates how reduction of stress and support for important functions during the perioperative care can improve and enhance recovery after major surgical operations. The overall hypothesis is that reduced stress in surgery enhances recovery by lowering the risk for complications and supporting the return of bodily functions such as gastrointestinal function and mobility. Studies are performed addressing mechanisms, mainly from a metabolic point of view, but outcome studies are also being done. Several national and international partners are involved with the group.
