Gastric bypass surgery in Poland
Gastric bypass is often considered the “golden standard” of weight loss surgery. We perform laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery Poland, which is a minimally invasive procedure, which entails many benefits.
There are usually two steps to perform during gastric bypass surgery abroad. The first step makes your stomach smaller. Your surgeon uses staples to divide your stomach into a small upper section (called the pouch) and a larger bottom section. The food you eat will go only to the pouch. Because of this you will eat less and lose weight.
The second step is the bypass. Your surgeon connects a small part of your small intestine to a small hole in your pouch. Because of that, the food you eat will travel from the pouch into your small intestine. As a result, your body will absorb fewer calories.
Advantages of laparoscopy over open surgery include shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery, less pain, smaller scars. Also, it is a good solution for patients who failed restrictive procedures like balloon, banding and sleeve gastrectomies. However, the main advantage is that the laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery in Poland is very affordable and it is an extremely successful procedure – you can expect 60-80% of excess weight loss!
