Over the last 30 years, gastric bypass surgery has been the most common type of bariatric surgery in the United States, where the largest number of bariatric surgery procedures are performed.
Procedure is creating a small stomach pouch and attaching it directly to a part of the small intestine.
After the procedure, food will go into this new pouch of the stomach and then directly into the small intestine. As a result, bypassing most of the stomach and part of your small intestine.
This surgery is helpful, if diet and exercise did not work or most importantly, you have serious health problems because of your weight.
This surgery is used mainly to treat severe overweight and also reduce the risk of some diseases associated with obesity, for example:
-Heart disease -High blood pressure -High cholesterol -Diabetes type 2 -Joint pain -Stroke
We perform gastric bypass operations, similarly all other bariatric surgery procedures, with laparoscopic techniques. In other words, we perform the procedure by accessing the intended site through only 5 small incisions, without opening your abdomen. The average time of surgery is 3 hours. However, this may vary depending on the anatomy and the story of any previously undergone surgery.
In conclusion, gastric bypass surgery is a very powerful weapon in your fight against obesity. However, it is not a miraculous treatment. Therefore most patients lose 65-90% of their excess weight within the first postoperative year. Also Gastric bypass provides perfect results in the treatment of obesity-related comorbidities as well. For instance, the primary ones are Type 2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, high cholesterol and acid reflux. That is to say, for this procedure to provide optimal result, it is important to take Vitamin Supplements after the surgery.
