Nearly 60% of severely obese women suffer from sexual dysfunction brought on by weight. A new study finds that women who undergo Gastric Bypass Surgery, a procedure performed at Texas Bariatric Specialists can have significant improvements in not only their weight but also all aspects of sexual function.
Research presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery showed in a study more than two thirds of women whom had identified with sexual dysfunction saw improvements and resolution within six months after gastric bypass or lap band surgery. “It was astounding that by the end of the study patients undergoing a gastric bypass scored similar to what is expected of the general female population”, says Dr. Nilesh Patel.
A gastric bypass is a bariatric procedure that is the single largest contributor to these findings and is offered at Texas Bariatric Specialists. The Laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery is a procedure in which, the surgeon makes a small stomach pouch at the top of the stomach the pouch is later connected to the small intestine bypassing the larger stomach. The gastric bypass can result in complete resolution in type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and the loss of 65 percent of excess body fat.
Experience and a tested hand are critical in receiving gastric bypass surgery or any bariatric procedure. Texas Bariatric Specialists is proud to be a Center of Excellence provider which ensures the highest in both surgical talent, cases completed, and follow-up care set by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
