Gastric bypass: The procedure

The procedure is done by colonoscopy and lasts approximately 2 hours. On average, it takes a hospitalization of 6 days. There is very little pain, recovery is rapid thanks to the minimally invasive endoscopy method.

Five small incisions (5 to 15 mm) are made in the wall of the abdomen and long thin instruments are inserted, including a camera.

The interior of the abdomen can then be visualized and manipulated. A small part of the stomach is separated using a surgical stapler, creating a small pouch similar to the stomach. The remaining stomach is left in place. The intestine is then divided and rejoined in order to divert food to the other part of the intestine located further down the digestive tract.

This operation must be considered irreversible.

Gastric bypass: Post-operative

Performing a gastric bypass is not an operation to be taken lightly. You will have to obey certain dietary rules. Allow at least a first week of liquid food, before allowing yourself a thickened soft food. Chewing foods will not be introduced for at least one month.
