4-week prehabilitation prepares cancer patients for surgery

Positive results for colorectal cancer patients from pre-operative program that combines nutritional supplements, relaxation techniques and exercise
Thu, 2016-12-01 09:28

Just four weeks of prehabilitation (pre-surgery preparation) may be enough to help some cancer patients get in shape for surgery. That’s according to a recent study of close to 120 colorectal cancer patients in Montreal. This potentially means that, barring unforeseen circumstances that stem from the surgery itself, their recovery is likely to be speedier too, according to earlier research from the same McGill-led team.
