Before I had my knee replacement surgery, I got hold of an iPad app for 
doctors from a company that makes artificial joints that details the 
procedure step by step. I suggested to my surgeon that since we had been 
discussing a partial anaesthesia I could keep up on the iPad and give him 
some pointers when he strayed. After that a full anaesthetic was all that 
was talked about, and what I was given. It seemed he didn't need any 
pointers anyway, as the operations on both knees went very well.
