Gastric Bypass Surgical Procedure
Gastric Bypass Surgery: What to Expect
Gastric bypass surgery can offers patients suffering from obesity a new lease on life. However, the surgery is only part of the equation. Successful outcomes from gastric bypass require the patient's ongoing, long-term commitment. This may include:
- Major long-term changes to diet
- Regular visits to a nutritionist
- Daily exercise
- Addition of nutritional supplements to diet
Gastric Bypass: Preparing for Surgery
Prior to your gastric bypass procedure, you'll be going through a significant amount of prep work in the weeks leading up to your surgery date. This may include:
- Diet modification prior to surgery
- Adoption of a new exercise regimen prior to surgery
Your physician will explain the procedure to you and offer you the opportunity to ask any questions that you might have. Learn more about gastric bypass: preparing for surgery.

Gastric Bypass and Post-Surgery Recovery
After the procedure, you'll be taken to the recovery room for observation. When your blood pressure, pulse and breathing are stable, and you're alert, we will take you to your hospital room. We will encourage you to be active and attempt to walk as soon as possible.
