Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures for the seriously obese. By creating a smaller stomach pouch, the body’s normal digestive process is altered, restricting food intake and the amount of calories the body absorbs. As a result, food bypasses a large part of the stomach and most of the small intestine.
In Full Gastric Bypass Surgery the digestive stomach is reshaped to restrict the amount of food intake of the patient and its absorption; thus reducing the amount of fat and calorie ingestion.
Gastric bypass surgery in Mexico is performed laparoscopically at the Obesity Goodbye Center by the surgical team of Dr. Sergio Verboonen. During the procedure, a small stomach pouch is created and attached to a section of the small intestine. This allows food to bypass a portion of the small intestine, where calories and nutrients are absorbed. The smaller stomach creates a feeling of fullness more quickly, and as a result less food is consumed.
