Against Severe Obesity

What is Gastric Bypass?

Gastric bypass is more than just surgery; it's a life-changing event.

This procedure involves creating a small stomach pouch and reconnecting the small intestine to this new pouch, significantly reducing the stomach’s size. This reconfiguration not only limits food intake but also alters the body’s response to food. As a result, patients experience a noticeable reduction in appetite and a feeling of satiety with less food.

Additionally, gastric bypass positively impacts metabolism and the regulation of obesity-related diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, offering benefits beyond weight loss.

Surgery Requirements

The selection of candidates for gastric bypass is a meticulous and personalized process. Ideally, patients should have a body mass index (BMI) that justifies the surgical procedure, typically a BMI of 30 or higher, that might be accompanied by obesity-related health conditions. In addition to BMI, Dr. Fraga and his team evaluate factors such as medical history, previous weight loss efforts, and the patient’s willingness to adopt significant lifestyle changes. This comprehensive assessment ensures that each patient receives the most suitable and safe treatment tailored to their needs and health goals.

Gastric Bypass Procedure

Undergoing gastric bypass is a life-changing decision. During the surgery, usually performed using minimally invasive techniques, Dr. Hernán Fraga creates a small pouch at the top of the stomach. This new, reduced-size stomach is directly connected to the small intestine. This redesign not only physically limits the amount of food that can be consumed but also induces changes in appetite hormones, contributing to sustainable weight loss. Patient safety is paramount, and strict protocols are followed to ensure each step of the procedure is as safe as possible, minimizing risks and maximizing positive outcomes.
