The Gastric Bypass operation
Gastric bypass surgery is is the method most frequently applied in recent years to reduce obesity in overweight patients.
How does Gastric Bypass surgery work?
During surgery, the stomach is reduced at the top of the stomach, a small portion of the stomach is split off. A raised loop of the small intestine is connected to this so-called “pouch”.
To do this, the small intestine is severed. One end of the intestine is as described connected to the pouch and the other redirected so that food and digestive juices are not mixed untill in the middle small intestine. The upper is bypassed directly to the small intestine connecting the stomach ("the bypass"). The remaining stomach stays intact, but this part gets no food.
The digestive juices are drained into the deeper sections of the intestine and thus the digestion can begin here, by splitting the food components.
The smaller stomach is about the size of a lemon or a kiwi fruit. It can absorb less food. People with a gastric bypass therefore, eat less (smaller portions of) food.
Connection of the stomach & intestines: the pyloric valve
The connection of stomach and intestines is also changed. Normally, the pyloric valve ensures that food doesn't get directly in the intestine and remains in the stomach, usually 2-3 hours. After gastric bypass surgery, the food passes directly into the intestine through the modified connection.
Things to know about Gastric Bypass Surgery
- After a gastric bypass, the abandonment of large amounts of sugar and fat is of great importance, because otherwise unpleasant phenomena (dumping syndrome) can occur.
- Because the body absorbs less nutrients and gets a lower quantity of food after the procedure, a nutrient deficiency must be prevented with multivitamins and supplements like Celebrate Vitamins.
- The surgery is performed with the so-called "keyhole method". There are only 5 small skin cuts in the area of the upper abdomen necessary, over which a small camera in the abdominal cavity can be introduced. The procedure usually takes 60 minutes.
- The surgical procedure is done under general anesthesia.
- A gastric bypass surgery always requires always a referral by the attending physician. Still, a medical evaluation must be made by experts, such as nutrition specialists and psychiatrists.
- In most cases, the costs of the operation are partially or completely covered by health insurance.
- The procedure costs varies from centre to centre.
- Usually, the surgery requires a hospital stay of 2-3 days or longer (drainage, pain treatment, exclusion of post-operative complications). Usually it takes 6 weeks untill full recovery. In some centres, this requires a liquid diet in the first weeks.
