Bariatric surgery is a treatment option for obese patients when weight-reduction strategies such as lifestyle modifications and pharmacotherapy fail. To date, bariatric surgery has resulted in sustained weight loss; the resolution of diabetes for some patients has also been observed. The objective of this study was to explore changes in-patient bariatric surgery delivery in Canada between 2004-2005 and 2008-2009.
