Gastric bypass review
Gastric bypass is a popular and recommended bariatric surgery procedure. Known as Roux en Y bypass this surgery creates a pouch in the stomach that is connected to the intestine. As the main stomach becomes smaller, you eat less and feel full faster, losing weight in the process. Roux en Y bypass can be done using minimally-invasive surgery that is done using endoscopes or it can be done using the open method, which entails a longer recovery time. You can lose as much as 65 percent of the excess weight over a period of two years.
All bariatric surgery procedures aim to reduce your food intake one way or the other and this is done by decreasing the size of your stomach. It is important to undergo any kind of bariatric surgery if you are highly overweight as you may develop, or be prone to developing, many diseases including diabetes, high blood pressure, breathing and joint disorders, cancer and heart problems. Often bariatric surgery can even reverse such diseases that you have or reduce your dependence on medicines for these problems.
