The Need For Clinical Nutrition

During a state of trauma, such as surgery, the body’s nutritional needs increase:

  • The body enters a higher metabolic state and requires more energy
  • Trauma and lack of use leads to muscle atrophy, which prolongs recovery
  • The immune system is weakened due to stress and shock
  • Risk of wound infection is increased
  • Persistent inflammation delays return to function
  • Trauma and physiological stress lead to increased fatigue
Nutritional deficiencies impede the natural progression of healing, including elevating the risk of infection and lengthening recovery periods. The latest clinical research has shown that patients who are nutritionally optimized pre and post op will heal better and faster and have better long-term outcomes. Unfortunately, most Americans are overfed and undernourished, meaning most Americans are not nutritionally optimized and are at a higher risk for complications post-surgery.
