Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass method for weight loss is one of the most common type of bariatric surgery and renowned for its effectiveness in weight loss. This procedure is performed laparoscopically and involves creating a small pouch from the stomach, thereby restricting food intake. Additionally, a segment of the small intestine is bypassed and connected to the newly created pouch, promoting reduced absorption of calories and nutrients. This approach enables lifelong portion control and facilitates significant weight loss. There is marked improvement in co-morbidities like diabetes after undergoing the procedure.
