In brief: Yes...

There is a statistic called a mortality rate, which is the percent of patients who die from a particular procedure or surgery.
Anyone who dies within 30 days or without ever leaving the hospital counts. You can look up the national statistics, and your bariatric program should be able to supply their own numbers. It will be small, but real. Good luck.
