The older adult population (>65 years) is growing at a rapid rate, and a significant percentage of older adults undergo surgical procedures. This population has a unique set of needs owing to the effects of aging, some of which make them particularly prone to postoperative complications and a prolonged recovery. The purpose of this document is to review the literature, consolidate current guidelines, and provide a set of expert recommendations to help practicing surgeons, anesthesiologists, and allied health care professionals manage older adults during the perioperative period. This guide is not a substitute for clinical judgment and experience.
