Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric Bypass Surgery

What is a Gastric Bypass?

First performed in 1967, the gastric bypass has stood the test of time and is still the most reliable procedure, for maximal weight loss. A gastric bypass works by creating a narrow pouch from the upper stomach, which is then connected to your small bowel that has been reconfigured into a Y-shape, using a second join.

There are several variations of bypass, for example, you may have heard about the mini Gastric or loop Bypass. Unlike the traditional Gastric bypass, that has two joining points between the stomach and the bowels a mini (single anastomosis) Gastric Bypass the pouch is joined directly to a loop of small intestine.

How does a Gastric Bypass work?

After a Gastric bypass it is difficult to eat quickly or eat too much, reducing portion sizes and requiring you to eat more slowly. There is an additional hormonal effect, that makes you feel less hungry and less interested in food.

What are the benefits of a Gastric Bypass?

Health Conditions

Gastric Bypass studies have shown that weight related illnesses, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnoea and arthritis, will be improved or may enter remission.

Significant Loss

Gastric bypass surgery leads to significant and sustainable weight loss by altering the digestive process, resulting in reduced calorie absorption.

Long-term Success

Gastric bypass surgery can provide lasting weight loss results when coupled with proper lifestyle changes and ongoing support.

Will a Gastric Bypass work for me?

The Gastric Bypass has been designed to support patients with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 35 or more, with other medical conditions, such as diabetes or high pressure or for someone with a BMI of 40 and above and you can calculate this via our online tool.

To support your success as with any weight loss surgery, patients need to be prepared to work hard with the gastric bypass and follow the advice given by your clinical team.

However, not everyone is suitable for the Gastric Bypass procedure and you would need an initial assessment with a Bariatric Consultant Specialist to assess your suitability and ensure the Gastric Bypass is right for you.
