Gastric Bypass Manhattan, New York City
Gastric Bypass is one of many surgical procedures designed to help people for whom weight has become a health issue. At Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, New York City, Dr Elliot Goodman guides his patients to and healthier and happier life.
A gastric bypass works by restricting the amount if food the stomach can hold before it sends the message to the brain that it is full. Doctors fool the brain by actually partitioning off a significantly smaller portion of the stomach and reconnecting the intestines to the new stomach pouch that has been created. The stomach's size is decreased and the vast majority has been bypassed, limiting the appetite of the patient receiving the surgery. Changes like diet and exercise are still necessary to increase the chances of a successful transition to a healthier lifestyle, but the bypass itself does meaningfully contribute to weight loss.
