Gastric Bypass in Miami

Have you tried everything to lose weight, but nothing seemed to work? Gastric bypass might be right for you. Bariatric surgery is for when diet and exercise have failed or when you have serious health problems as a result of your weight. Common obesity-related health problems include type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, joint pain, and increased risk of certain cancers.

What is Gastric Bypass?

Gastric Bypass, is a type of weight-loss surgery in which a small pouch is created from the stomach and connected directly to the small intestine. Swallowing food will go into this small pouch of the stomach and then directly into the small intestine after gastric bypass, bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine.

How is the gastric bypass surgery performed?

You will be given general anesthesia prior to your surgery. Some surgeries require large (open) incisions in your abdomen. However, the vast majority are performed laparoscopically, which involves inserting instruments through multiple small incisions in the abdomen.

The surgeon then cuts across the top of your stomach, sealing it off from the rest of your stomach. The resulting pouch is about the size of a walnut. The small intestine is then cut and sewn directly onto the pouch. Food will enter the small pouch of stomach that is attached to the small intestine bypassing the rest of your stomach. Surgery typically lasts a few hours. You awaken in a recovery room after surgery, where medical staff monitors you for any complications.

Are you a candidate for Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery?
