About Gastric ByPass Surgery

gastric bypass turkeyIn these operations, also known as Gastric ByPass, a large portion of the stomach is bypassed and a small-volume (approximately 30-50 cc) stomach section is prepared and sewn into the small intestine. In this operation, as in other obesity surgery operations, it is aimed to reduce the volume of the stomach and dispose of some of the consumed food without being absorbed by disabling some parts of the intestines. In this way, patients feel full with less food, and some of the food they receive is absorbed.

How Is Surgery Performed?

Gastric bypass surgery is usually performed with laparoscopic method, as in other obesity surgeries. Surgery is performed by entering the small incisions that open to the abdomen. In this way, the patient is protected to a great extent from risks such as possible wound infection and hernia that may develop after surgery.

Surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

Depending on the reduced size of the newly created stomach and reduced food absorption, it is necessary to fully comply with the surgeon’s instructions for the use of the necessary vitamin and mineral supplements. The patient can resume normal life by being sent home after 3-4 days.
