Achieve significant weight loss goals, safely, with Gastric Bypass Surgery

“My personal experience at Dr. Fridley’s Office is exceptional. I am always greeted by his professional staff, Marcia and Tomika, who make your visit pleasant from the get-go.

Dr. Fridley went over the surgery procedures and then drew a detailed map on the back of my papers so I could understand what was being done. He asked if I had any questions and was patient.  In the pre-OP, I met another team of wonderful Nurses headed by Nurse Maureen and her crew.  They made me relax immediately with their humor and kind words. In the OR, another team greeted me, and I got to talk to Dr. Fridley right before the surgery

These 5 Stars are well deserved!  I was fortunate to be in the best care with this Surgical Team. Thank You!”  –  MD

About a Gastric Bypass
Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y, is a type of weight-loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine. After gastric bypass, swallowed food will go into this small pouch of the stomach and then directly into the small intestine, thereby bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine.
Benefits of a Gastric Bypass
  • Reduces caloric absorption promoting significant weight loss.
  • Those with weight induced cardiovascular health problems such as type II diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease should find out if they are a good candidate for gastric bypass.
  • Gastric Bypass patients will often see improvement in sleep apnea, mobility, and blood pressure.
  • Newer minimally invasive procedures reduce hospital stays and make recovery more comfortable.
