The surgeons and physicians at Obesity Control Center® are among the leading authorities on the gastric bypass procedure having performed this surgery over a significant number of years. It is often recommended for the morbidly obese and with the development of our exclusive Dual Long Limb (DLL) procedure, it is also curing diabetes in qualified patients.
Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most frequently performed procedures for the seriously obese. By creating a smaller stomach pouch, the body's normal digestive process is altered, restricting food intake and the amount of calories the body absorbs. As a result, food bypasses a large part of the stomach and most of the small intestine.
Gastric bypass surgery in Mexico is performed laparoscopically at OCC. During the procedure, a small stomach pouch is created and attached to a section of the small intestine. This allows food to bypass a portion of the small intestine, where calories and nutrients are absorbed. The smaller stomach creates a feeling of fullness more quickly, and as a result less food is consumed.
Studies conducted on gastric bypass Tijuana patients show that after one year, weight loss can average more than 75% of excess body weight. One report found that gastric bypass surgery reduced the total number of serious health problems of participating patients by 96%.
As our newest partner and Director of Metabolic Surgery at OCC, Dr. Bernal oversees the hospital's bypass surgery programs. Along with Dr. Ortiz, he has developed a new procedure called DLL, or dual long limb metabolic bypass. This procedure is outperforming any metabolic surgery to date. It is a revolutionary procedure that is literally bringing a complete cure, and freedom, to thousands of qualified diabetes patients.
