Abstract

Morbid obesity continues to grow at an alarming rate. As of 2004, 35% of Americans were considered to have a body mass index (BMI) over 30. As the number of patients undergoing weight loss surgery increases, the patient population presenting to primary care physicians with previous gastric bypass will also increase. Accordingly, it will become imperative for primary care physicians to be familiar and comfortable with the care of these patients. This review focuses on the management of gastrointestinal disorders in postoperative gastric bypass patients.
