Roux En Y Gastric Bypass

obesity

Gastric bypass, also known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is a weight loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting it directly to the small intestine. After gastric bypass, the swallowed food passes into this small pouch formed from the stomach and from there directly into the small intestine. Thus, most of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine are bypassed during digestion.

Gastric bypass is one of the most common weight loss surgeries. It is applied when diet and exercise do not benefit or when the patient has serious health problems due to his weight.

Why is Gastric Bypass Surgery Performed?

Gastric bypass is used to help you lose excess weight and reduce the risk of potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems. These health problems are:

  1. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
  2. Cardiac Diseases 
  3. High Blood Pressure
  4. High Cholesterol
  5. Obstructive Sleep Apnea 
  6. Type 2 Diabetes
  7. Stroke
  8. Infertility

Who Is Suitable for Gastric Bypass?

Gastric bypass surgery is usually performed on people with a body mass index of 40 and above, and people with a body mass index between 35-39.9 and severe weight-related disorders such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or severe sleep apnea.

However, gastric bypass is not suitable for anyone who is severely overweight. In order to have a weight loss surgery, you must meet certain conditions. Before surgery, extensive testing may be performed to determine the patient’s suitability.

You must also be willing to make lasting changes in your life to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
