Gastric Bypass in Turkey

Gastric bypass surgery refers to a technique in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower “remnant” pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both. Any GBP leads to a marked reduction in the functional volume of the stomach, accompanied by an altered physiological and physical response to food.

What is the short description of Gastric Bypass?

Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most performed surgeries in the world. This surgery is performed to enable people to lose weight with two mechanisms. In a gastric bypass surgery, a small stomach volume is created. Further, the resulting small stomach is anastomosed to the small intestine. Food from the mouth bypasses the large stomach and passes directly into the small intestine. This procedure is called gastric bypass.
