What is bypass surgery?

Heart surgery.

Endocarditis
Bypass surgery is an operation in which surgeons create a bypass to allow blood to go around blockages in the arteries. To accomplish a bypass, surgeons use a graft - a blood vessel from the leg or chest. With the graft in place, blood can now flow freely to the heart muscle, bypassing the blocked or narrowed section of the artery. A week's stay in the hospital is usually necessary afterwards.

Mostly...

Gastric_bypass_surgery
Modern bariatric procedures have become more standardized and safer. However, you need to go through a complete evaluation process to determine whether it is right for you. The most important decision is perhaps picking the right program with a good record.

Is gastric bypass surgery good?

In terms of ultimate weight loss, the bypass would be #1 followed closely by sleeve. The band would be a distant third. For fixing problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, the ranking is the same. Sleeves are a good option for someone without diabetes or heartburn. If you have those problems or have a BMI over 50, the bypass is a better option.

what is heart bypass surgery ?

Bypass blockage

Cardiac
In simple terms, when you the arteries that take blood to the heart muscles are blocked, blood does not reach the further parts of the distribution area. So bypass literally bypasses the blockage with another artery supplying blood to the part of the heart distal to the blockage.

Dr. Joseph A. Kuhn answered:

Does gastric bypass surgery work?

Bypass works

Photo_008
Gastric bypass "works" in 95-97%. Works in three ways: 1. Small pouch makes you feel full. 2. Decreased Ghrelin (hunger hormone). 3. Diverts food from lower stomach and duodenum (helps with diabetes). Must eat appropriately. Solid food, no sipping with food, no sweets, no bad snacks. Most lose 80% of excess weight at one year. Then some bounce back with total loss at 5-7 years of 70% excess wt.
