Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery is a treatment that aims to shorten the pathway that the food takes in the body. It reduces the stomach volume and shortens the absorption path of the food.

How is gastric bypass surgery done?

In this laparoscopic surgery small incisions are made in the abdomen to allow surgical instruments to be inserted. The stomach volume is reduced to approximately 20-40 cc. The small intestine is attached to the reduced stomach pouch. Thus, the amount of food that the patient can eat decreases and the absorption path is shortened.

Since most of the stomach, duodenum (first part of the small intestine) and the middle part of the small intestine (jejunum) are bypassed, the absorption of digestive foods (especially high-calorie sugary foods) is prevented.

Who can have gastric bypass surgery?

  • People with a BMI of 35 and higher.
  • People with a BMI of 30 and higher with specific health problems, like type 2 Diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea or other diseases.
  • Patients aged 18 – 65 years.

How long does the procedure take? How many days will patients stay in the hospital?

One day before surgery our specialist physicians do pre-surgery tests. After receiving the approval of all our specialists, gastric bypass surgery is performed on the day of the planned operation. After the operation, our patients stay in the hospital for 3-4 days for the postoperative care.

How should you eat after gastric bypass surgery?

Our bariatric dietitian, an expert in post-operative care, provides detailed advice and explanations on nutrition after gastric bypass surgery. We provide our patients with specially selected supportive foods suitable for the post-surgery period.
