  • First step was to understand the need of the patient for performing the knee surgery.
  • Second step was to register the patient, assign the doctor, select the surgery date and finally undergo the surgery.
  • The next step of the planning was setting up the local notifications depending on the surgery pre and post date.
  • One of the main factors of planning was having the real time web service call for registering the patients who wants to undergo surgery.

This application is a dignified guide for the patients who wish to undergo TKR surgery. It is meant for the elderly people who have taken the knee surgery treatment and also for the caregivers who stay with them.
