Obesity has increased dramatically as has the amount of money spent in treating major weight-related comorbidities. The cost of health care in morbidly obese patients has increased 5 times in the last 18 years. Although an increase has occurred in the number of patients requesting revisional surgery, few centers offer such surgery and few centers offer bariatric surgery in the ambulatory setting.
