Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
What is Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass?
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass has been the most commonly performed gastric bypass surgery. The small stomach pouch created restricts portion size and the digestive juices are diverted, decreasing absorption by 1/3 the length of the intestines. This operation also produces a decrease in appetite for about 1 year that aids in weight loss as well.
The procedure can be completed using a minimally invasive or open approach. The laparoscopic approach has advantages, but the difference in recovery is not significantly different. We perform both approaches, using selection criteria to determine which one will be most effective for you.
The average long-term weight loss with Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is 50-70% of excess body weight.
