Laparoscopic
Gastric Bypass Explained

 Gastric Bypass is an operation ideal for people suffering with Type 2 diabetes, acid reflux and who have struggled with their weight.

There are two stages to this operation. In the first part, the stomach is divided into two parts using a surgical stapler.

The smaller part of the stomach is then joined (anastomosis) to the second part of the small bowel (jejunum).

During the second part of the operation a new joint (anastomosis) is made between the jejunum and the jejunum to allow food to reach the remaining part of the small bowel and avoid reflux of acid and bile into the esophagus.

Food no longer passes through the entire length of the intestines but instead leaves the small pouch and enters the second part of the jejunum bypassing the most of the stomach and the first part of the small bowel (duodenum and part of the jejunum).

Advantages of Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass:

  • The Gastric Bypass done laparoscopically in the hands of a skilled surgeon produces long-term and significant weight loss – reported up to 60-80% of excess weight lost.

 

  • Moreover, this procedure reduces (restricts) the amount of food intake while stimulating changes in gut hormones that actually reduce appetite and increase satiety.
