  1. Values shown represent the additional costs (2018 Canadian dollars, rounded to the nearest $1000) 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].
