Gastric ByPass Surgery in C Scheme, Jaipur
Also known as Roux-en-Y, gastric bypass is weight-loss surgery. During the surgery, your doctor creates a small pouch in the stomach, which is directly connected to the small intestine. Once you undergo this surgery, whatever food you eat will reach this small new pouch and then directly into the intestine. This helps the food bypass your stomach and the first section of the small intestine. It is a type of bariatric surgery and is usually the most preferred one in Jaipur.
Remember, although gastric bypass is a weight loss solution, this is only conducted when all other methods, such as dieting and exercise fail. So, what happens after the surgery is that your stomach becomes smaller, making you feel full a lot faster.
