Gastric bypass surgery is typically performed for weight loss. Weight-loss surgery is also known as bariatric surgery. Eligibility requirements for this procedure include a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or have a BMI between 35 and 40 and an obesity-related condition, such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure or severe sleep apnea.

Gastric Bypass Conditions
What are the Gastric Bypass Condition?
Weight-loss surgery changes how your digestive system (stomach and small intestines) process the food you eat. Bariatric surgery is done to help you lose excess weight and reduce your risk of potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and liver disease. Weight-loss surgery is only one part of an overall treatment plan.
Let our highly skilled team at the Medical Arts Surgical Center help you decide on your best option.
Open Abdominal Surgery
Gastric bypass surgery involves different options to shrink the size of your stomach, so you can't eat as much as you used to. The surgeon also re-routes, or bypasses, parts of your digestive system so you don't absorb as much food. There are several types of gastric bypass surgical procedures which offer both the open abdominal and robotic assisted laparoscopic options
The surgeons at the Medical Arts Surgical Center utilizes robotic-assisted surgery for the majority of their gastric surgeries.
Robotic surgery uses small incisions instead of a large abdominal incision, thus making it a less invasive procedure than traditional bariatric surgery. The surgeons at the Medical Arts Surgical Center use da Vinci Robotic Surgery System that enables them to perform weight loss surgery using computer-guided, magnified, 3-D visualization for precise movements inside your body.
