Gastric Bypass Surgery
(click for worldwide facilities list): Gastric bypass Surgery is a type of Bariatric surgery. Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery uses a combination of restriction and malabsorption bariatric surgery procedures. During Gastric bypass Surgery, the surgeon creates a smaller stomach pouch. The surgeon then attaches a Y-shaped section of the small intestine directly to the pouch. This allows food to bypass a large portion of the small intestine, which absorbs calories and nutrients. Having the smaller stomach pouch causes patients to feel fuller sooner and eat less food; bypassing a portion of the small intestine means the patient’s body absorbs fewer calories.
One meta-analysis stated that for laparoscopic bariatric surgery patients who experienced significant weight loss their overall quality of life greatly improved, they experienced improved physical functioning and appearance and they experienced improved social and economic opportunities.
