As anyone who's ever had surgery well knows, being in the hospital after major surgery is no fun. Healing involves some pain, discomfort and, uncertainty…The iPad is helping Randy Sterner recover from heart surgery. "The iPad is a nice way to navigate through some of these resources and keep track on a daily basis that you're doing things you need to do to keep your recovery going," Sterner said. "What the iPad does is allow patients to access their plan of care," said David Cook, M.D., Mayo Clinic Anesthesiologist.
