Gastric bypass surgery alters the way your stomach and small intestine process food, allowing you to lose weight. Your stomach will be smaller after the surgery. With less food, you will feel full. Some portions of your stomach and small intestine that absorb food will no longer be able to absorb the food you eat. As a result, your body will not get all of the calories it needs from the food you consume.
Aakash Healthcare is one of the best hospitals for gastric bypass surgery.
What is gastric bypass surgery?
One of the most prevalent and successful weight loss treatments/surgery is gastric bypass. The long-term effects of this surgery have been thoroughly investigated and recorded, and it is now one of the most popular and effective weight-loss methods available. It's known as "The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)" and is the "gold standard" of weight-loss surgery. Other bypasses should not be confused with this one. The gastric bypass creates a small stomach pouch that prevents high food intake and allows for much smaller meals, resulting in less calories consumed. A large section of the stomach and a portion of the small intestine are bypassed (food does not enter the small intestine) resulting in food malabsorption that leads to lesser calorie absorption.
