Gastric bypass surgeryFor patients who are more than 100 pounds overweight, gastric bypass surgery may help you reach a healthier weight. WellSpan Medical Weight Management works directly with area gastric bypass surgeons to provide a comprehensive approach to the procedure.

The gastric bypass procedure greatly reduces the size of a patient's stomach so that the person feels satisfied after eating a small amount of food. The result of this is a reduction in the amount of food consumed and calories absorbed, which produces long-term and sustained weight loss.

We will work closely with your surgeon to provide you with information about risks, benefits and expectations of gastric bypass surgery. In addition, we will provide education and support prior to surgery. We encourage healthy behavioral changes to promote a successful outcome. Losing weight before surgery can help decrease your risk of complications that can happen following surgery. After surgery, it is important to maintain open and regular communication with your surgeon to address proper nutrition and surgical issues. The program provides ongoing support through physician visits, educational lectures and support groups.

WellSpan York Hospital, along with area surgeons John Monk Jr., MD, and Edward Garber, MD, are accredited as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence by the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons.
