This is a great article that highlights how important Nutrition is with recovery from surgery.  Remember the old saying, you are what you eat, well when the body needs to repair itself and heal after a surgery it is important to give the body the building blocks to do its job properly.

"Nutrition is an aspect of surgery that is completely in the hands of the patient. By being properly nourished prior to surgery, we can decrease complication rates, time spent in the hospital, as well as hospital readmissions.  Food and nutrients are powerful tools to help modulate inflammation and bounce back faster after surgery.” points out Meredith (Ripley) Grunden a PA at the Foundation Nutrition Outreach.
