Active Comparator: ERAS
The perioperative management of the patients in this arm will be according to a fast-track protocol designed by the investigators. The preoperative component of this program is the same as routine practice. Intraoperative and postoperative components which are different to routine practice are as described in the intervention section. This protocol is based on current literature regarding Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS).
Other: Enhanced Recovery After Surgey for Sleeve Gastrectomy
No Intervention: non ERAS
The perioperative management of patients in this arm will be according to routine practice currently implemented at our institution.
- Length of Hospital Stay [ Time Frame: day of discharge ]The trial intends to investigate whether median length of hospital stay for patients under a standardised optimised perioperative care program is less than patients who have routine perioperative care that undergo the same operation.
- Complications [ Time Frame: 30 days ]The study will investigate complication rate for each group identifying incidence, type and severity of complication according to the Clavien Dindo Classification system
- Readmission rates [ Time Frame: 30 days ]The number of patients per group who represent to hospital for any reason during a 30 day period after the day of surgery
- Postoperative fatigue [ Time Frame: Baseline and postoperative days 1, 7 and 14 ]A measure functional recovery after surgery as measured by the validated surgical recovery scale.
- Compliance to the ERAS protocol [ Time Frame: through to day 1 postoperatively ]Prospectively recording whether components of the ERAS programme are being carried out as per protocol.
