ABSTRACT
The article presents a research study on the utilization of an electronic format to document data of patients' preoperative goals and postoperative satisfaction following bilateral total knee arthroplasty. The study provides a real-time outlook into the postoperative recovery phase and records significant data involving patient function after the total knee arthroplasty. Moreover, the use of the technology proves a logical postoperative pain variability among individual patients.
