The Gastric Bypass is a procedure used for treatment of morbid obesity. This surgery has the highest percentage of operations performed in the United States because it offers great results to the patient.
The Gastric Bypass is a restrictive and malabsorptive surgery that will help the patient feel a faster satiety.
The procedure reduces the stomach and the initial part of the small intestine. This will help reduce the patient’s insulin production and make him or her feel satisfied when eating less amounts of food.
The procedure is performed by laparoscopy. This helps reduce the length of time that the patient needs to stay in the hospital and presents less complications as well as giving the patient the opportunity to return as soon as possible to his or her daily activities.
The results vary from patient to patient according to his or her case. Once the surgery has been performed, the patient must undergo a disciplined diet. The patient should be able to lose 50% to 75% of his actual weight.
Approach your doctor so he or she can explain any doubts in a professional and individual manner which will be specific to your case, since every case is different, independent and special.
