In just two years, COVID-19 has broadly impacted and disrupted usual health care, often leading to the postponement of non-urgent health care practices . Despite these and other negative consequences, the pandemic is also responsible for an increase in the use of tele- and eHealth applications. Such applications use the potential of smartphones, computers, and the internet to allow for remote patient treatment and monitoring [2, 3]. Specifically, patient education via e-learning seems to be a cost-effective and easy-to-implement use of such eHealth applications. In fact, studies introducing eHealth applications as a way to further inform and educate patients have already been completed successfully [4-6]. Though eHealth interventions for perioperative education in patients undergoing lumbar surgery are still evolving, early evidence is supportive of such applications .
