Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Procedure

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is one of the oldest procedures in this field and has retained its popularity over time. The stomach is divided to create a small pouch into which food passes while bypassing the majority of the stomach. This reduces the amount of food you can eat. This pouch is then connected to a limb of the small intestine. The food bypasses most of the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine, reducing the absorption of fat and calories. It provides a balance of weight loss and manageable side effects. To improve the results, banding of the gastric pouch has been found to be very effective. This procedure is useful for those with higher BMI or with comorbidities like diabetes.
