At Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, we can help you dodge obesity, literally, with gastric bypass surgery. This procedure, designed to aid weight loss in obese people, reduces the size of the stomach by dividing it into a small “pouch” and larger “remnant” piece, then reconnects the small intestine to both. The result: patients cannot eat a large volume of food in any one sitting, and therefore cannot take in as many calories per meal. In addition to a healthy lifestyle, exercise and good lifelong eating habits, this procedure can be an effective method for dramatic, long-term weight loss.
At Cedar Park Regional Medical Center, gastric bypass is performed laparoscopically, which means that it is a minimally invasive procedure, using several small incisions rather than one large one. Patient benefits can include a shorter hospital stay, decreased risk of complications, less pain and a quicker recovery.
