Gastric Bypass One of the most popular baratric surgery procedures, gastric bypass is proven for long-term weight loss. Performed since the 1960s, the treatment has been improved and refined over time. Surgeons currently use the "Roux-en-Y" gastric bypass technique, which involves stapling the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch the size of a golf ball.

The doctor then attaches a portion of the small intestine to the pouch to bypass a large portion of the stomach and the upper segment of the small intestine, allowing patients to feel full after a small amount of food and absorb fewer calories. Rerouting the digestive tract allows for significant weight loss in patients, as long as they follow their recommended postop diets and exercise routines.

"I'm really happy with my surgery and I've started to lose weight. The procedure was very very easy and the doctor and his staff are very friendly. I am an international person and my family lives in a different country but to be honest with Dr. Korman and his staff I felt like I was with my family<3 I already recommended it to all my friends who need weight loss surgery."

"I made the decision to have the surgery with Dr. Misra after a lengthy consult and with my cardiologist's approval. This was a preventative surgery in attempts to prolong my life as I was told that due to my cardiac history if I lived until 60 it would be a miracle. The wait time here in Saskatchewan, Canada is almost three years, which is not acceptable. Great hospital staff and office staff at dr. Misra's office."
