Strong for Surgery-Strong for Life

Unhealthy living habits increase the risk of complications after surgery. It is well documented that preoperative smoking and drinking cessation programmes of 4-8 weeks duration, significantly reduce the increased risk of complications after surgery.

Strong for Surgery - Strong for Life is a project by Swedish Society of Medicine with the aim to increase safety for patients during surgery through intervention against unhealthy living habits, as well as reducing the risk of future illness by supporting the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.

By integrating more effective programme for lifestyle intervention in the clinical setting, we can improve treatment results and promote faster recovery.
