Gastric Bypass Surgery in Rock Hill, SC
Obesity can be life-threatening. Get treated by the caring and dedicated surgeons at Piedmont General Surgery Associates. If you are looking to get gastric bypass surgery in Rock Hill, SC, due to complications from obesity, look no further than our medical office. Our gastric bypass surgery utilizes a minimally-invasive laparoscope to perform a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. This surgery is divided into two stages. The first stage restricts the stomach from taking in more calories than it can handle by shrinking the size of the stomach. Since the stomach is made smaller, it will only be able to handle a certain amount of food before you feel full. This second stage of the Roux-en-Y process involves bypassing the duodenum and connecting the small stomach pouch to another section of the small intestine called the jejunum. As a result, your body absorbs less calories and nutrients.
This surgery requires commitment to the treatment, a new diet, and a lifestyle change. To learn more about gastric bypass surgery from Piedmont General Surgery Associates, call our office and speak with a caring member of our staff.
