The Gastric Bypass surgery is considered by the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons and the National Institutes of Health to be the gold standard of weight loss surgery — and the single most successful procedure for excess weight loss and long-term weight control. A combination restrictive/malabsorptive operation, it is the operation of choice for most Bariatric surgeons in the United States. Studies show the Gastric Bypass has some patients more than 15 years post-surgery and maintaining about 75% of their excess weight loss. Now, with modern refinement of the operation, there are many patients losing 85% to 100% of their excess weight and keeping that weight off.

•  With the Gastric Bypass you will stay 3 nights in the hospital and the surgery is done laparoscopically.
• The Gastric Bypass will help lower your blood pressure, eliminate type 2 diabetes, lower your blood sugars, improve your sleeping.
The Gastric Bypass works by creating a small pouch for a stomach allowing the patient to feel full quickly and it also process most of the food in the intestine, allowing for most of the calories to bypass the body.


The Gastric Bypass is not right for you if:

• You have an inflammatory disease or condition of the gastrointestinal tract, such as ulcers or severe oesophagitis.
• You have severe heart or lung disease that makes you a poor candidate for surgery.
• You have some other disease that makes you a poor candidate for surgery.
• You have a problem that could cause bleeding in the oesophagus or stomach. That might include oesophageal or gastric varices (a dilated vein). It might also be something such as congenital or acquired intestinal telangiectasia (dilation of a small blood vessel).
• You have portal hypertension.
• Your oesophagus, stomach or intestine is not normal (congenital or acquired). For instance you might have a narrowed opening.
You have experienced an intra-operative gastric injury, such as a gastric perforation at or near the location of the intended band placement.
• You have cirrhosis.
• You have chronic Pancreatitis.
• You are pregnant. (If you become pregnant after the Lap-BandŽ System has been placed, the band may need to be deflated. The same is true if you need more nutrition for any other reason, such as becoming seriously ill. In rare cases, removal may be needed.)
• You are addicted to alcohol or drugs.
• You are under 15 years of age.
• You have an infection anywhere in your body or one that could contaminate the surgical area.
• You are on chronic, long-term steroid treatment.
ˇ You cannot or do not want to follow the dietary rules that come with this procedure.
ˇ You might be allergic to materials in the device.
• You cannot tolerate pain from an implanted device.
•You or someone in your family has an autoimmune connective tissue disease. That might be a disease such as systemic lupus erythematosus or scleroderma. The same is true if you have symptoms of one of these diseases.

• The doctors strongly believe that patients with a "sweet tooth" will not do well with the Lap-BandŽ System and feels that the Bypass surgery or the Gastric Sleeve may be the better option for you. If you eat a lot of sweet foods, the doctors would prefer to do the Bypass operation. The same is true if you often drink milkshakes or other high-calorie liquids.
