Gastric Bypass Surgery is a proven and effective solution to help patients with obesity lose weight and keep it off. In some instances, however, a patient’s weight loss can stall or weight can return. This is most often due to the stomach pouch stretching or the stoma, which is the connection between the pouch and the intestine, dilating. As a result, patients can eat more before feeling full and food is digested more quickly.
Fortunately, the surgeons at New York Bariatric Group in Port Jefferson offer a less invasive procedure that may be the right solution for patients wanting to get back on track with their healthy weight loss.
