Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass is surgery wherein manages to put an end to the problem of obesity. This intervention consists of a cut of between 10 and 30 centimeters, which is made in the stomach, so it succeeds in creating a small gastric pouch. This new gastric pouch, will then be responsible for making functions of the stomach, so that the same capacity will now be much lower. The stomach itself, remains intact, so you are still receiving normal blood flow. Gastric bypass is considered as a mixed intervention since not only restricts the amount of food you eat, if that also, by shortening the route them through the gut, cannot be less absorption of their calories. In this way, over time and with due care, is achieved lowering up to 70% of overweight in the patient.

Gastric bypass can be carried out through the open or laparoscopic, (i.e. operates through the use of a small video camera, without the need of a) large cutting) being the last, the type of operation most used and most recommendable, since it gives you less recovery time and the scars are much smaller.
