Lap Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass

Lap Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass

Lap RYGB is suitable for wide BMI range patients i.e. BMI 32.5-60. It is most suitable for people suffering from significant GERD and Hiatal Hernia along with obesity. Diabetic obese people also are candidates for this procedure.

Who are the Candidates For Lap Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass:

This procedure involves combination of restrictive and malabsorptive components to achieve a successful outcome. With the help of Staplers we create a small gastric pouch to limit the amount of food intake, and a large portion of the small intestine is bypassed to limit the nutrients and calories absorbed.

The goal of the surgery is to make you feel full quicker so you don’t overeat, and absorb fewer calories by the modifications made in the small intestine. Gastric bypass surgery has been shown to help get cure of obesity and related illnesses, including heart disease, high blood pressure, and especially type 2 diabetes. It is performed laparoscopically through tiny incisions (minimally invasive technique) so recovery is very quick.
