Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass technique separates the stomach into two uneven parts with a small vertical pocket of approximately the volume of a glass of water. The gastric pouch and the small intestine are connected, and the small intestine is cut at 50 cm from its origin, while the lower part is sutured to the stomach. In the postoperative phase, food arrives in the small pocket of the stomach, which allows the bypassed patient to reach satiety more quickly and eat at significantly lower quantities.

Gastric bypass is a prevalently performed operation that requires only a very brief hospital stay. The patient may be discharged the following day. In the long term, this procedure allows the patient to lose more than 65% of their excess weight. Gastric bypass is particularly recommended for people prone to snacking.
