A bionic stomach is an organ replacement that has 125% efficiency, and increases metabolism by 12.5% (metabolism is the average of stomach and liver efficiency).
Bionic stomachs can be crafted at a Fabrication bench once the Bionic replacements research project has been completed. They require 10 Plasteel, 3 Advanced component, 26,000 ticks (7.22 mins) of work, and a Crafting skill of 8.
Installing a stomach can be used to instantly treat gut worms as the new stomach replaces the diseased part. With it installed, further infections are also prevented.
If the operation fails, the part has a chanceto be destroyed.

Of all the bionic parts in the game, it is perhaps the second least generally useful after the bionic spine, only improving rest rate multiplier. However, it is still worth installing if there is one available.
A bionic stomach gives a 12.5% increase to metabolism, which in turn has a 30% influence on Sleep rate; thus, it is a 3.75% increase in sleep efficiency, or, for a standard 8 hour sleep cycle, a savings of just over 17 minutes/day, or about a 1.8% increase in waking hours/day.
The bionic stomach is a cheaper way to reduce time sleeping than upgrading to a royal bed, however both can be combined.

In addition to the normal benefits of a bionic stomach, the detoxifier stomach eliminates the risk of food poisoning at the cost of vulnerability to EMP.
In addition to the normal benefits of a bionic stomach, the reprocessor stomach reduces the amount of food a pawn requires by 25% at the cost of vulnerability to EMP.
In addition to the normal benefits of a bionic stomach, the nuclear stomach combines the benefits of both the detoxifier and reprocessor stomachs, reduces the amount of food a pawn requires by a whopping 75% and eliminating the risk of food poisoning at the cost of vulnerability to EMP and inflicting torso cancer on average once 120 in-game days.
