Go From Obese to...OMG!

Idaho Falls, ID Gastric Bypass Weight Loss Surgery

In the past twenty years, obesity rates have risen in Idaho Falls, Idaho and many other American cities. Have you been impacted? If you are in need of Idaho Falls obesity help, your primary doctor might suggest weight loss surgery. Also called bariatric surgery, Idaho Falls weight loss surgery methods include Lap Band® surgery as well as gastric bypass surgery. In gastric banding, the Idaho Falls gastric surgeon will use a gastric band to create two pouches in the stomach: an upper pouch and a lower pouch. Because the upper pouch is so much smaller, less food is needed to make the person feel full. Similarly, in gastric bypass, the stomach is divided with staples and then food passes through a bypass from the top section to the intestines. Another procedure called biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch might be used if the patient’s Body Mass Index is above 50. To get started, meet with your Idaho Falls bariatric surgeon to discuss the Lap Band® and bypass surgery.

Idaho Falls is located in Bonneville County, which is in eastern Idaho.  Health care includes Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center and Mountain View Hospital. Post-secondary education here includes Eastern Idaho Technical College as well as a dual campus for the University of Idaho and Idaho State University.
