If you are looking for a solution for significant weight loss, your provider at Goshen Physicians Center for Weight Reduction may recommend gastric bypass, or Roux-en-Y. This bariatric surgery alters the normal digestive process by reducing the size of the stomach and diverting food past the first part of the small intestine where the body absorbs most calories.
Though a complex procedure, gastric bypass is effective. Patients throughout the U.S. typically lose and keep off more than 50 percent excess weight after this surgery.
Once you’re a part of our medically managed weight loss program, you can be considered as a candidate for gastric bypass. Our integrated team can explain gastric bypass side effects, complications and risks in Goshen, IN, and help determine if this procedure is right for you.
