Gastric Bypass Surgery

A gastric bypass surgery is a procedure that is performed on the stomach, dividing it into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower pouch. The intestine is then rearranged so that it connects both. All gastric bypass surgeries result in a decrease in the volume of the stomach along with an altered physical and psychological response to food.

Gastric Bypass Surgery is usually used to treat morbid obesity, but it may also be prescribed for hypertension, Type two diabetes, sleep apnea and a few other conditions. After the surgery, when an individual ingests a small amount of food the walls of the gastric pouch stretch. The nerves on the wall are stimulated in the process and send a signal to the brain that the stomach is full. Patient gets a sensation of fullness even they have eaten only a small amount of food. There is usually a drastic weight loss after the surgery.
