Bariatric surgeries became so demanded in recent years significantly that it is now commonly believed that these surgeries are truly viable and producing long term results.

As briefly mentioned in other treatment types, restrictive procedures ground on the idea of limiting the capacity of the stomach that it holds at a time, whereas malabsorptive procedures does ground on the idea of limiting the nutrient absorption.

Gastric bypass surgery, also known as The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, consists of two steps. First a small pouch is being created where the stomach with the help of a stapler is divided into two with a small upper section and larger bottom section. The upper part is where the food intake moves into and this enables stomach to consume less calories, correspondingly fewer nutrients. This way satiety is reached earlier than usual as entire procedure creates a bypass for food.

Second step involves bypassing, in which bottom end of the small pouch is connected to small intestine to enable less digestion of food to some degree.

Since the route of the food stream is changed during the procedure, it brings changes in gut hormones that promote satiety, hunger, and reverse one of the primary mechanisms by which obesity induces type 2 diabetes, which is mostly the reason why overweight patients struggling with major comorbidities like this may best be fitted into this procedure. However, health assessment should be made and you need to consult with our doctor with the help your medical consultant to make sure all highly important details are communicated and best tailor-made treatment plan is offered to you.

Evidence in the latest research conducted, has shown that, bariatric surgeries not only serves for weight reduction or control, but also decreases mortality and morbidity. Patients with one or more weight associated comorbidity, including type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, hyperlipidemia, asthma, severe urinary incontinence,  reflux disease, arthritis, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, heart disease, stroke, infertility, should definitely consult with our doctor to figure out their options for a durable treatment at Oddo Obesity Surgery and provide accurate and complete information about the health history and get their tailor-made metabolic treatments.
