According to studies, Anxiety is quite common among the patients preparing to undergo a surgery and the level of anxiety differs due to several factors which includes the type of surgery to be carried out, patient's past experiences, demographic profile etc. Among all the factors that are associated with the anxiety levels of the patients, the fear of physically getting inside the operation theatre is very common. Though there are several steps taken to explain the operative procedure to patients, they still feel stranded while entering the operation theatre because of which their anxiety levels remain high. This study was carried out to evaluate whether virtual reality based solution could reduce patients anxiety before operation. © 2019 IEEE.
