About Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass, a procedure that falls under Bariatric Surgery, is a serious surgery to help morbidly obese patients lose a large quantity of weight. These patients have a BMI over 40, with a minimum of 80-100 lbs excess weight and have health complications due to their weight. Variations of the Gastric Bypass all include modifying the stomach size to significantly decrease the amount of food patients can ingest. Patients feel full and satiated after only eating a small amount of food due to a much smaller stomach size. After the surgery, it is imperative that patients strictly follow their surgeons' instructions on food intake, additional supplements and vitamins to maintain weight loss and get proper nutrition.
