|GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY
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.
Gastric Bypass is not right for you if:
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
• 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).

• 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.
