How does Gastric Bypass Works?

On this procedure, a small bag is created with the superior part of the stomach (1-1.5oz.) and the rest is removed. The pouch is connected and rerouted lower down with the small intestine, in order to allow the bile and pancreas fluids fully digest the food restricting absorption of calories.

After this procedure the food will pass through the small pouch into the distal part of the small intestine,  the digestive juices from the stomach and upper intestine will be able to still help the digestion more distal than usual.

Weight Loss Process

This procedure guarantees up to 85% of excess weight within the first year.

Gastric bypass patients usually lose a lot of weight very quickly. Within 3 months, the average patient will lose about one-third of their excess weight. By the one-year mark, more than (almost) two-thirds of the excess weight will be gone.
