Consider Gastric Bypass Surgery if You Have Type 2 Diabetes

San Antonio’s Top Gastric Bypass Surgeons Dr. Gerardo Carcamo and Dr. J. Keith Wright

If you are a weight loss surgery candidate with diabetes, consider Gastric Bypass Surgery as one of your best options.

San Antonio-based STX Surgeons offers a number of bariatric surgery options. The team at STX is experienced in helping patients with Type 2 diabetes lose weight and improve their overall health and quality of life.

During the Gastric Bypass procedure, the stomach is divided permanently to create a small gastric “pouch” that effectively limits meal size. The small intestine is connected to the upper pouch, enabling food to “bypass” the remainder of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine. This procedure limits the nutrients and amount of calories absorbed. Research shows that Gastric Bypass surgery may be more effective at resolving diabetes than other weight loss procedures.
