Abstract

Prehabilitation aims to enhance functional status before surgery. Through multimodal approaches, including structured exercise, nutritional counseling, and patient empowerment, prehabilitation programs can improve the patient’s preoperative functional status, reduce postoperative complications and length of stay, and lower costs of care.
