Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is a minimally invasive gastric bypass surgery that both reduces the size of your stomach and bypasses a portion of your small intestine. This procedure supports weight loss in two ways. First, a smaller stomach allows for only small meals, but results in the same feeling of fullness you would normally have after a large meal. Second, the intestinal bypass will reduce the amount of food that is actually absorbed by your system. Instead, more of your food intake will be passed directly into the large intestine and ultimately processed as waste. This procedure is generally performed on people with a BMI of 40 or higher, who require more aggressive intervention to support weight loss. On average, patients lose more than half of their excess weight following Roux-En-Y gastric bypass.
