About Bariatric Surgery
The gastric bypass surgery is the most commonly performed operation for weight loss in the United States. It has been performed since the 1960's and numerous good studies have proven it to be safe and effective for long-term weight loss. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has endorsed the gastric bypass surgical operation as a safe and effective weight loss operation. Most insurance companies recognize the operation as a reasonable treatment for obesity.
The surgeons at the Chapman Center for Obesity perform the majority of their surgeries laparoscopically. They have performed over 5,000 bariatric surgeries.
