Laparoscopic gastric bypass

Shortening the patient’s digestive system while also making the stomach smaller ensures the reduction of food consumed and also digested, bypassing a large part of the stomach and small intestine entirely. 

Gastric bypass surgery uses laparoscopic – or keyhole – techniques where a surgeon will create a smaller space by stapling off the upper stomach under general anaesthetic. This means that the lower stomach will no longer hold food, resulting in the need for smaller portions. 

This long term weight loss method helps patients lead a healthier lifestyle and lessens the need for food before feeling full. Full recovery should take approximately four to six weeks and a significant change in diet should be implemented. This procedure is also effective in treating / curing Type 2 Diabetes (Metabolic Surgery)
