What is the Gastric Bypass Surgery?


ypass surgery is a weight loss procedure for extreme cases of obesity. People that have made several attempts at losing weight, when diet and exercise have failed.

In recent years, the Gastric Bypass procedure has become a more acceptable answer for weight loss, specially for those with a high Body Mass Index. And Dr. Sergio Verboonen takes a very unique approach on how he performs the Gastric Bypass surgery to his patients, specially patients that have a BMI between 45 and 60.

Who is a candidate for bypass surgery?

Weight loss has always been a difficult process. Extremely obese people have been abusing food for many years. Conventional diets are fine for those with a BMI of less than 35. Those with a BMI of 45 or higher are at serious risk of major health issues or even death. The strain the extra weight puts on your body can result in diabetes, sleep apnea, or heart disease.

Another component of weight loss is exercise. A sedentary lifestyle coupled with obesity further increases your health risks.

Am I eligible for bariatric surgery?

There are strict criteria in order to qualify for this procedure. Since this surgery focuses on weight loss, if you have a BMI of 45 or higher and are sedentary you may qualify. If you have a BMI of 35 and have made numerous attempts to diet and exercise and have failed you may also be a candidate.
