The Benefits of Gastric Bypass

bariatric-surgeryGastric bypass surgery involves the creation of a small stomach pouch, and re-routing part of the intestines. Doing this reduces the amount of food your stomach can hold, and it limits the calories you consume. Since you are taking in fewer calories, you will lose weight quickly after surgery, and will be able to sustain the weight loss.

The Stafford Surgical Specialists team performs all surgery laparoscopically with smaller incisions and instruments, for short recovery, less scarring and a lower risk of complications.

Gastric bypass is beneficial for the following reasons:

  • Significantly improves or resolves obesity-related health conditions such as: diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea, arthritis, and shortness of breath
  • Rapid weight loss
  • Fast recovery (2-4 weeks)

Personalized, Supportive Aftercare

Following your gastric bypass surgery, you will enroll in our comprehensive aftercare program designed to optimize your success. Our doctors, nurses and dieticians will answer questions, develop meal plans and suggest helpful tips.
