Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass is a surgical procedure used to treat severe obesity. This procedure reduces the size of the stomach and redirects the digestive system, which leads to weight loss. Groruddalsklinikken is a recognized clinic in Norway that specializes in the treatment of obesity and offers gastric bypass as one of its services.

Gastric bypass works by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach using surgical techniques. This pouch is then connected directly to the small intestine, and the rest of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine are bypassed. This limits the amount of food that can be consumed and also reduces the absorption of nutrients.

There are several advantages to gastric bypass. First, the reduced amount of food that can be eaten causes patients to feel full more quickly, resulting in weight loss. In addition, the redirection of the digestive system causes the body to absorb fewer calories and nutrients from the food eaten. This also contributes to weight loss.

Gastric bypass can also have positive effects on certain health problems associated with obesity. Many patients experience improvements in type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and arthritis after surgery. This is due to both the weight loss and the changes in hormone balance that occur as a result of the procedure.

It is important to note that gastric bypass surgery is an extensive surgical procedure and there are risks and complications associated with it. Patients must undergo a thorough assessment and evaluation before being approved for the operation. Lifestyle changes are also necessary after the operation to maintain the weight loss and ensure good health in the long term.

Groruddalsklinikken is a renowned clinic that offers gastric bypass as part of their comprehensive treatment program for obesity. They have an experienced team of surgeons and healthcare personnel who work closely with the patients to ensure the best possible result. The clinic also provides extensive follow-up and support after the operation to help patients achieve permanent weight loss and better health.
