Bariatric Surgery

Gastric bypass surgery has been gaining popularity over the past several years, and may be available to you as a tool for weight loss. The American Society for Bariatric Surgery and the National Institutes of Health estimate that in 2005, 170,000 Americans underwent this operation. This is up significantly from 63,000 in 2002. Undoubtedly, the popularity of this surgery was fed by the publicity surrounding TV weatherman Al Roker’s and singer Carnie Wilson’s participation. Their results were dramatic.

However, this is really a last resort measure. Gastric bypass surgery is major surgery and, as such, has all the risks associated with any other invasive procedure. It should not be considered unless other less invasive means of weight loss have been given your full effort but still not helped you achieve a stable reduction in your weight. The Roux-en-Y is the most commonly performed gastric bypass operation. The procedure involves two steps: (1) Sectioning off a small segment of your stomach so that you can only take in small amounts of food, and (2) Cutting and reattaching a portion of your small intestine to this new small stomach, thereby reducing the amount of nutrients and calories you absorb from the food that you do eat.

To qualify for this procedure, potential patients must meet criteria set by the National Institutes of Health. For example, a person must have a minimum BMI of 40, or a BMI of 35 with associated co-morbidities. In addition, prospective patients are required to have tried other weight loss methods or treatments already.

Although you must discuss this with your doctor, and ultimately your surgeon, to know whether you qualify for the surgery, here are the general guidelines...
