Gastric Bypass Surgery Description & Pricing
Is Gastric Bypass Right for You?
Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric Bypass is performed by creating a small stomach pouch at the top of the stomach and connecting the newly formed pouch directly to the small intestines. The reduced stomach capacity restricts the amount of food an individual is able to consume and the “bypass” of the first two sections of the small intestines results in fewer calories absorbed.
Individuals who undergo gastric bypass surgery must strictly adhere to dietary restrictions with a life-time requirement of dietary supplements to prevent malnutrition.
Many people find that other conditions they may have suffered from prior to surgery such as back pain, sleep apnea, depression, diabetes, and high blood pressure, are either improved or totally resolved after surgery.
This procedure is considered minimally invasive and is performed laparoscopically.
Procedure Type: Malabsorptive & Restrictive
