The results for bariatric surgery are overwhelmingly powerful!
Why is Bariatric Surgery so underutilized?
Length of Stay: 1-2+ days; Robotic Techniques (Lengthier OR times) = EXPENSIVE!
Few bariatric specific, mutually beneficial, bundled, alternative payment models exist.
Increased readmissions, reoperations, morbidity/mortality,
ER Visits with surgeons who do not specialize in bariatric surgery.
Lack of follow through,
Low conversion rates.
