ABSTRACT
The article reports that in obese patients, bariatric surgery is cost-effective at 2 years compared with conventional therapy alone for management of type 2 diabetes. The study says that up-front costs of laparoscopic banding surgery could be amortized over just 2 years to show a cost benefit is impressive. Still, the studies raise more questions than they answer.
