The Wall Street Journal, on September 29, 2020, had an article about the rise in gastric bypass surgery due to the Covid 19. The stress and anxiety of obesity as a high risk factor has caused many patients to seek help.
Hospitals and doctors have been unable to perform elective surgeries because of lockdowns. Now that things are starting to open, so are the opportunities for elective surgeries. The Journal reported that gastric surgeries are the types of procedures that are increasing.
Patients must be aware that there are risks of gastric surgery that must be taken into account before deciding to undergo this type of surgery.
