Gastric Bypass Procedure
Nov 18, 2018

Bariatric patients are enrolled in a diet program with a nutritionist for 6 months. If no significant weight is lost, they are then considered prime candidates for sleeve gastrectomy procedure. Many bariatric surgeons have leaned one less invasive methods such as gastric banding, but studies are finding that weight loss is not as effective using banding procedure. Also, bypass procedures are less natural feeling than the gastric bypass although producing similar weight-loss results. In fact, Dr. Sadek recommends this procedure for patients who would like to lose a significant amount of weight. Between gastric banding, sleeve, or bypass, bypass surgery provide the most severe weight loss. It is important to note that diet and exercise is key to prevent the gastric pouch from re-stretching to its former size. This video is intended for educational purposes.
