Bariatric Services

The Ontario government is increasing the province’s capacity for providing bariatric services including surgery. It is expected that the number of bariatric surgeries performed in Ontario will increase to over 2,000 annually by fiscal year 2011/12.

The ministry requires that all patients requiring bariatric services, including surgery, must be referred by their physician to one of Ontario’s Regional Assessment and Treatment Centres (RATC) for evaluation.
