Gastric bypass surgery is second only to gastric sleeve surgery in popularity among patients considering bariatric procedures. Although surgeons are moving away from gastric bypass when possible because of its complexity, it is still an extremely effective surgery and the best procedure for some patients. If you are considering gastric bypass surgery near Houston, here is some of what you need to know.
During gastric bypass, the stomach is divided into two parts, creating one part that is approximately the size of an egg. This portion of the stomach is attached to the intestines via a stoma. The smaller stomach size allows patients to feel full with less food, restricting the amount of food a patient can eat, while the Intestinal bypassing reduces the amount of calories the body absorbs, and increases the levels of hormones that help patients feel full.
