Gastric Bypass


Also known as the Roux-en-Y, gastric bypass is a weight-loss surgical procedure that involves stapling the stomach to create a smaller pouch. Then this new pouch is connected directly to the lower small intestine, bypassing the main stomach, duodenum, and upper small intestine. As a result, patients eat less and absorb fewer calories. The smaller stomach and bypassing the proximal gastrointestinal tract often lead to successful weight loss in more than 90% of patients. 98% of the time, we can perform the procedure assisted by a robot (Da Vinci) or laparoscopically.
