 Gastric Bypass vs. Lap Band

There are several options for weight loss surgery in Idaho. Some surgeons in Idaho perform what is know as "Gastric Bypass". The gastric bypass procedure has serious risks and side effects while the lap band procedure shows the same weight loss results without as many risks. Some of the risks of gastric bypass include:

  • Stomach cutting, stapling and intestinal re-routing required
  • More operative complications than with the lap band
  • Portion of digestive tract is bypassed, and as a result can cause major nutritional deficiencies
  • "Dumping syndrome" can occur
  • Non-adjustable
  • Extremely difficult to reverse
  • Higher death rate than the lap-band procedure

It is important to research and talk to professionals about which procedure is best for you.
