  1. Values shown represent the additional burden of treatment of co-morbidities (patient-years) associated with the standard care pathway relative to scenarios of improved care after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. Results were scaled according to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass volume in the top 3 Canadian provinces in the year ending in 2014 [4].
