Gastric Bypass Surgery⎮Prof.Dr.Abdulkadir Bedirli

Updated: May 9, 2023

Since the volume of the stomach is reduced, the patient's food intake is reduced. In addition, the absorption of total calories, protein and other nutrients in the patient decreases as a result of the elimination of the intestine of 150-200 cm.

The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. First of all, the operation starts with the small intestine anastomosis, in which the small intestine of 150-200 cm is disabled for absorption. A new 30-milliliter pouch is then created in the stomach. The surgery is ended with a second anastomosis made between the feeding leg of the small intestine and this new stomach pouch. Gastric bypass surgery can be performed both laparoscopically and robotically.
