Gastric Bypass Surgery
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y)
With gastric bypass surgery, the surgeon creates a stomach pouch that makes the stomach a lot smaller and reduces the amount of food it can hold. The smaller stomach size helps you feel full more quickly, which reduces the amount of calories you eat. The stomach pouch is then surgically attached to the middle of the small intestine, skipping the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine (duodenum). Going past part of the intestine may also limit the amount of calories that are absorbed and sends messages to your brain so you feel full.
Gastric bypass has been shown to resolve or improve:
- Type 2 diabetes – 60-84% resolved
- Sleep apnea – 76% resolved
- High blood pressure – 66% resolved
- High cholesterol – 94% resolved
