Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (RYGBP) is one of the leading surgical treatments for morbid obesity and leads to significant long-term weight loss, diabetes remission, decreased cardiovascular events, and reduced mortality. RYGBP is, however, also implicated in increased fracture risk, mainly due to higher bone turnover rates and malabsorption. In the present study we used Raman microspectroscopic analysis to determine bone quality (an important determinant of bone strength)...
