Gastric Bypass Tunisia
Like weight loss surgeries, gastric bypass is a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure. It designed to limit the amount of food that you can eat and digest. At the Bariatric and Metabolic Institute, we perform gastric bypass
using a minimally invasive approach. Patients who are suffering from severe obesity can resort to the surgery after failing to lose weight with diet and exercise.
As in bariatric surgeries, Tunisia gastric bypass aims at reducing the size of the stomach by creating a small pouch at the top of it using surgical staples or a plastic band. The resulting pouch is only about the size of a walnut and can hold about one ounce of food. After the pouch has been created, most of the stomach and part of the intestines are bypassed by attaching (usually stapling) part of the intestine to the small stomach pouch. As a result, a gastric bypass patient can not eat as much and absorbs fewer nutrients and calories.
Note that unlike the gastric band which can be removed, the bypass is an irreversible procedure.
