Procedure

Gastric Bypass

Procedure

This procedure is the most popular bariatric procedure worldwide.
The Gastric Bypass Surgery performed by Dr. Rumbaut is the Gastric Bypass Roux-en-Y (gastro jejunal bypass) through laparoscopy. In this procedure the stomach is reduced in size, so that the patient will be satisfied with a smaller amount of food, and the distance in which the food is in contact with the small intestine is reduced thus reducing absorption of calories by the body. These two factors cause a greater reduction in the overall weight loss.

How does it work?

When you eat food your pouch fills faster than normal and stretches the outer walls of the stomach, sending a satiety signal to the brain.

Food then passes from the stomach to the second section of the intestine decreasing caloric absorption.

The body assumes that the first section of the intestine is full of food and sends hunger reduction signals.

Losing weight without being hungry.

Advantages

  • Reduction of appetite and increased satiety.
  • Calorie absorption reduced.
  •  Reduction of cortisol (stress hormone) and insulin (sugar-regulating hormone) promoting less fat accumulation and helping prevent Type 2 Diabetes.
  • May lead to conditions that increase energy expenditure
  • 90% reduction in diabetic mortality
  • 50% reduction in cardiac mortality.
  • Improves diabetes and metabolic syndromes.
  • In some cases it cures diabetes type 2 completely.

Life changes

You can go back to work or school 7 days after your procedure if your job doesn’t require physical activity (desk job).

You’ll have sugar sensitivity. You might feel tachycardia, anxiety and cold sweat for 30-45 min. if you have too much sugar. This is called “dumping” or dumping syndrome; your new intestine (originally the second section) is not used to handling large amounts of sugar.
Since the first part of the intestine is not being used, vitamin B12, iron, calcium and folic acid absorption is reduced.

Taking supplements and monitoring nutrition levels are necessary after the procedure.

Alcohol tolerance is reduced due to increased rate of absorption.
