Gastric Bypass ProcedureFor people struggling with managing their weight, gastric bypass can be an effective treatment for obesity and related conditions. It works by reducing the size of the stomach while also reconnecting it to a point lower in the digestive tract, bypassing the upper portion of the lower intestine. Patients who undergo gastric bypass typically experience weight loss averaging 30% of total body weight, increased energy and freedom of movement, and improvements to or the resolution of obesity-related health conditions such as sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes.
