Measurement of perioperative quality of recovery (QoR) is an important tool in improving the patient's perioperative experience. By making use of the Quality of Recovery-15 (QoR-15) questionnaire, this study aimed to measure the QoR on day 1 in patients following elective and semiurgent orthopedic surgery at an academic hospital. A secondary aim was to determine factors that may influence the QoR.
