Gastric bypass is a popular bariatric surgery in the United Kingdom.
The procedure involves creating a small stomach pouch and then constructing a “bypass” of some of the small intestine. The smaller stomach pouch restricts the amount of food you can comfortably eat, and the bypass decreases the number of nutrients and calories absorbed.
The procedure is performed laparoscopically (keyhole surgery) and takes about 2-3 hours to perform. Patients are expected to stay in hospital for an average of 2-3 days and the average excess weight loss is about 60-70%.
Complication rate is about 5% and mortality is less than 1%. Like any type of weight loss surgery long term nutritional supplements and monitoring is important after this type of surgery.
