Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass Roux-En-Y works by using surgical staples in order to make small pouch at the top of your stomach. Then a segment of a small intestine is attached to this pouch. The stapled stomach only holds one ounce of fluid. Also, the surgery constructs a tiny stomach outlet that reduces the speed food leaves the stomach.

Due to the smaller stomach size, you feel full for only small amount of food and for a longer period of time. Roux-En-Y gastric bypass surgery can be considered by people who have BM of 40 or higher or people who have BMI 35 or higher and have obesity related diseases.

This surgery decreases the stomach volume by 90% and the gastric bypass pouch is formed where the stomach is least susceptible to stretching. People who have gone through Roux-En-Y gastric bypass surgery should change their lifestyle, dietary, and behavioral changes.

Not only Roux-En-Y gastric bypass surgery helps to reduce weight, also it helps with diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, gastric reflux and improves fertility.

Similar to any other surgical procedure, Roux-En-Y gastric bypass surgery also have some difficulties. It causes intestinal obstruction, dumping syndrome, behavioral and lifestyle changes, more frequent bowel movements, nutritional deficiency, etc.
