Gastric Bypass

Evolve offers gastric bypass surgery to overweight individuals. Gastric bypass surgery, also known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, reduces the size of the stomach and allows food to bypass part of the small intestine resulting in expedited weight loss. During the procedure, a skilled Evolve surgeon divides the stomach into two small pouches. The smaller pouch is connected to the small intestine to shrink the stomach and reroute your digestive system. This results in a smaller stomach, which reduces cravings and positively affects gut hormones. As a result, you may experience significant, rapid and long-term weight loss.

The Cost of the Gastric Bypass

The cost of a gastric bypass varies according to your specific insurance plan. Luckily, we have a team of insurance specialists who will help you figure this out the first day you call in. They will work to ensure you get the maximum coverage out of your plan for this procedure.

If you do not have insurance or wish to pay in cash, Evolve offers highly competitive pricing for the gastric bypass procedure. While the average cost nationwide for this procedure is $19,000, Evolve offers this procedure for as low as $11,350 in certain cities.

Whatever option you choose, know that the gastric sleeve is a wise investment. Patients will save an average of $11,000 per year after their second-year post-op, as a result of avoiding the expensive medical costs of obesity.

Diet & Exercise After Gastric Bypass Surgery

Post-Op Diet: Long-term weight loss success means strictly following your recommended post-op diet. You will be provided an eating guide to follow after surgery. Here’s an example of how typical post-op diets flow:

  • Week 1 – clear liquid diet
  • Week 2 and 3 – transition from liquid diet to pureed foods
  • Week 4 and 5 – transition from pureed foods to soft foods
  • Week 6 and on – begin eating regular foods

Exercise: Aftercare is essential to sustained weight loss. By staying active at least 30 minutes a day, 5-6 times a week, you can drastically improve your weight loss success. We recommend starting with 15-minute walks daily right once healed from surgery and increasing this to 30 minutes.
