A Gastric Bypass Surgery also known as a Bariatric Bypass Surgery is a procedure that helps a person lose weight by changing how their stomach and small intestine digest food. After a Gastric Bypass Surgery, the size of your stomach will be reduced significantly. The small intestine will also be bypassed, as the large intestine is attached to this small pouch to help alter the digestion process. This will help you feel full while eating a lot less food. A Gastric Bypass Surgery is often a procedure many people in the West travel abroad to receive. The Gastric Bypass Cost In India generally runs around $8,000, whereas someone without insurance in the USA can expect to pay around $30,000 for the same procedure. The Gastric Bypass Cost is about 30-50% of what it costs in the US to have the same procedure done overseas. This encourages many people to consider becoming medical tourists to have this life-saving procedure performed at a price they can afford.

Stomach Bypass Surgery is generally an option only for the morbidly obese who are at least 100 pounds over their “recommended” weight based on their height. These people generally have a BMI of at least 40% or higher. During a Stomach Bypass Surgery, a large part of the stomach is blocked off to help alter the absorption of food to help morbidly obese people feel full faster. This consequently helps them lose the weight they need to lose. Oftentimes, with dramatic weight loss people will have their future health problems resolved.

Sometimes a less invasive option is available to the patient, which can help decrease recovery time. For some patients, Laparoscopic Bypass Surgery is an option. This procedure entails the surgeon making 4-6 small incisions in your belly, and doing the surgery via tiny microscopes entered through the incisions. It depends on the individual case as to if this Gastric Bypass Surgery can be done laparoscopically. Surgeons like to opt for this procedure whenever possible, as it is much less invasive, and allows the patient to return to a more active lifestyle much sooner than having to do a full, open-belly procedure. There is also a lot less risk of a hernia or infection occurring when procedures are done laparoscopically. The entire procedure generally takes about 4 hours to perform.
