Gastric Bypass in Tamarac, FL

What Is A Gastric Bypass?

The gastric bypass is one of the most well-known bariatric surgeries in the country. Sometimes referred to as "Roux-en-Y" or simply a "bypass," a gastric bypass is a procedure designed to boost weight loss efforts by reducing your stomach space and bypassing part of the small intestine. At Fernando E Bayron MD, we offer gastric bypass surgery as an option for Tamarac, FL individuals who have struggled with weight loss or who are at risk of severe health complications due to their weight. If you're looking for a long-term solution to shed pounds and haven't seen the results you want with diet and exercise, gastric bypass surgery may provide the help you need. To learn more, schedule a consultation with our team today.

How Does Gastric Bypass Surgery Work?

Our practice uses a sophisticated, robotic-assisted approach to gastric bypass surgery, which offers greater precision with less potential for scarring. After you've been sedated, our surgeon will make several small incisions around the abdomen. We'll use these openings to insert a small camera and the various tools we'll need to complete the procedure. During the surgery, we'll create a small stomach pouch that's big enough to hold about one ounce of food so that you will feel full much faster. Afterward, we'll cut and reconnect a portion of the small intestine to the new pouch. The process usually takes about 1 – 2 hours, and you'll likely need to stay for a few days in the hospital while we monitor your recovery. Most patients feel sore for days or weeks following gastric bypass surgery, but you can relieve any discomfort using pain medication (over-the-counter or prescription if necessary).

What Are the Benefits of Gastric Bypass Surgery?

A gastric bypass can be a powerful weight loss tool, especially when diet and exercise alone aren't producing noticeable changes in your body. Some of the advantages of gastric bypass surgery at Fernando E Bayron MD include:

  • Helps patients achieve dramatic weight loss (up to 80% of excess weight)
  • Alters the digestive process for long-term results
  • Robotic-assisted approach minimizes risks of complications and scarring
  • Effective at fighting obesity-related health complications, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes, among others
