Gastric by pass

This type of surgery more complex but more efficient in producing weight loss. Following laparoscopic gastric bypass the remaining stomach is very small and food intake is reduced. The food is going from the stomach directly to the bowel by passing the rest of the stomach, the duodenum and about 1,5 meters of the small bowel (See picture). This possibly creates less appetite.

After gastric bypass the consumption of sweets is minimized and the weight loss is enhanced. On the other hand this operation carries more operative risk and requires more days of hospitalization. Following gastric bypass there is need for vitamins and mineral supplementation for life.
