Who is a gastric bypass intended for?
If you are overweight and, for example, suffer from diabetes, high cholesterol or repeated heartburn, a gastric bypass will help in most cases.
This procedure is particularly suitable for people who, despite repeated diets, are struggling to lose their excess weight. It is especially useful for people who are addicted to sweets, pasta and sugary drinks.
When do you qualify to have your stomach reduced through gastric bypass surgery? In addition to carrying a certain amount of excess weight, you must also be in good condition to be able to undergo the operation.
The consulting physician will always examine this from person to person. Furthermore, we also check whether a gastric bypass is the best procedure for you, or whether other types of stomach reductions may suit you better (e.g. a gastric sleeve).
