Vilnius, Lithuania -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/09/2018 -- Gastric bypass surgery involves making the stomach smaller by dividing it into a small upper pouch and larger lower pouch then connecting the small intestine into a hole in the smaller pouch. Many people go abroad for gastric bypass surgery as a weight-loss option nowadays.

Gastric bypass surgery alters how the stomach and small intestine handle the food that people eat. It is for this reason that gastric bypass surgery abroad has become a popular choice for those who seriously want to lose weight. This convenient and practical option is significantly less expensive when done abroad especially for people living in the UK and Scandinavian countries.

"I have been overweight ever since I was in high school and have tried all types of weight-loss programs without success because of my big appetite. I have read a lot of good things about gastric bypass surgery and after doing some research online, I have learned that I can choose to have an open surgery and a laparoscopy. Though both procedures are under general anesthesia so I won't feel anything, I chose the laparoscopy method because of the quicker recovery time and invisible scars", - says 33-year old Sophia Lewis who is already recovering from her successful surgery performed at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.

"People who are seriously looking for medical intervention on losing weight have realized that gastric bypass cost abroad is cheaper thus can save them more money. This is why gastric bypass surgery has become one of the most sought-after procedures here at Kardiolita Hospital. We have no reported MRSA infection and the patients trust our experienced surgeons when it comes to surgery. We follow the highest industry standards while still offering very affordable pricing." - says Adrius Kostogriz, the CEO at Kardiolita Hospital in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Patients choosing Kardiolita Hospital for their gastric surgery save up to 70% while getting world-class medical services, which is a huge deciding factor for patients from abroad.
