Gastric Bypass surgery is a surgical procedure used to treat severe obesity and related diseases. The candidates who are recommended to undergo this surgery include:
- Individuals with a body mass index (BMI) over 40, indicating severe obesity.
- Individuals with a BMI between 35 and 40, who have chronic diseases associated with obesity such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart and artery diseases.
- Individuals who have attempted weight loss through other methods such as diet and exercise but have not achieved significant results.
Potential candidates for this procedure are evaluated on an individual basis, which includes medical, tissue, and device tests, blood tests, and other therapeutic tools.
Candidates are selected based on their good response to surgery and their ability to tolerate the necessary lifestyle changes after surgery, including regular nutrition and physical activity.
