Gastric Bypass Surgery

The Gastric Bypass is designed to be a  procedure which will restrict the amount of food the patient can intake and also decrease the efficiency by which a person absorbs the components of the food. Performed laparoscopically, using six small incisions in the abdomen as opposed to the traditional open method of one large incision.

  • Performed laparoscopically, using six small incisions in the abdomen as opposed to the traditional open method of one large incision.
  • Ideal for patients 100 pounds or more overweight, and have very poor metabolism.  This procedure is ideal especially for patients suffering from diabetes.
  • Average weight loss has been shown to be approximately 75% of excess body weight at 5 years.
  • Uses both techniques of Obesity Surgery
    Restriction: By creating a small pouch that will serve as a reservoir for food, the patient can only consume very small meals, approximately 2-3 ounces before feeling full and satisfied.
    Malabsorption: A small segment of the small intestine is bypassed to create an atmosphere where the food that is eaten by the patient is not absorbed by the body. This means that the fat is not absorbed, however the vitamins and nutrients of the meal are not absorbed as well.
  • Due to the bypass of the intestine, patients will find high sugar and high fat consumption very difficult, frequently experiencing Dumping Syndrome which causes nausea, lightheadedness, increased heartbeat and diarrhea. The advantage of this negative consequence is that it reinforces the principles of healthy eating choices.
  • Gastric Bypass has been shown to have a profound impact on obesity related illnesses. Studies have shown that following the procedure, patients have experienced complete resolution of the following: 95% of diabetes, 99% of acid reflux, 75% of sleep apnea, 97% of high cholesterol, 92% of high blood pressure.
