What is Gastric Bypass?

Gastric Bypass is a method that has been used in the treatment of obesity for more than 20 years. In particular, it reduces the absorption of fatty foods and carbohydrate foods by the intestine and their mixing into the blood.

It was first standardized at a meeting held in 2001. In this process, 90 percent of the stomach will be disabled in the first step, only 10 percent of the stomach remains, this portion has the approximate cup size, the second move is applied through the small intestines, the second intestines have an average length of 600 cm.

Most of the sugar and fat are absorbed from the area 120 meters ahead of the intestines. Here, this part is disabled, in this way, fat and sugar cannot be absorbed by the body. Gastric bypass is completed when these two stages are completed.
