Gastric Bypass Procedure Information

This procedure is used to treat morbid obesity, a condition which arises from severe accumulation of excess weight as fatty tissue, and the health problems that arise from it. These procedures are meant as an option for people who are severely obese and cannot lose weight by traditional means or who suffer from serious obesity-related health problems. A gastric bypass procedure consists of a division of the stomach into a little upper pouch and a larger lower remnant pouch. The operation promotes weight loss by restricting food intake and interrupting the digestive process. It is estimated that roughly 150,000 gastric bypass procedures were performed in the US last year.
