“[It’s] the most underperformed surgery you should be getting”, is how Dr. Oz recently labeled the gastric bypass procedure on his popular TV show. Only a small percentage of people who would qualify for this procedure actually seek to have the surgery, which is unfortunate given the superb results of gastric bypass reported by patients and physicians.
In a nutshell, gastric bypass surgery significantly reduces the volume of the stomach. This means patients will feel fuller after consuming a small amount of food, resulting in significant weight loss. Another important but less known fact is that patients report a considerable reduction in feeling hungry. But that’s not all…
Clinical studies have also shown that dramatic weight loss and decrease in appetite are not the only positive outcomes from gastric bypass surgery. Patients have seen amazing improvements in some serious or even life-threatening illnesses such as:
- Type II diabetes (studies have shown that up to 80% of patients have experienced an actual reversal in their condition)
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Sleep apnea
Additionally, it has also been discovered that gastric bypass reduces the risk of such grave illnesses as cancer and heart diseases.
Overall, gastric bypass surgery provides patients an opportunity to have a “new start” and to take control of their lives again. Granted, it may be a little worrisome to consider surgery, but with some research and guidance from an experienced specialist at CHRIAS, patients find that gastric bypass surgery is safe and effective, and its benefits literally transform lives.
