Gastric bypass is a surgical procedure that reduces the volume of the stomach and changes the food circuit. The food passes directly into the middle part of the small intestine.
How’s the gastric bypass going ?
This operation modifies the food circuit by connecting the bottom of the esophagus and a small part of the upper pole of the stomach directly to a loop in the small intestine.
Gastric bypass aims to cause a slower passage of food, a decrease in ghrelin levels, malabsorption of food and dumping syndrome.
It is an irreversible operation and can be performed under laparoscopy or by laparotomy.
A pre-anesthetic consultation is mandatory before the surgery which lasts about 2 to 3 hours.
What are the consequences of the operation ?
You may feel pain that can be managed by painkillers. The diet is gradually resumed following the advice of your doctor.
