Gastric Bypass Roux-en-Y


Gastric bypass surgery is designed to make a portion of the stomach nonfunctional and to reroute the small intestine.

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery is a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive bariatric procedures that involves surgically reconnecting the stomach and upper small intestines in roughly a Y shape. It is the most commonly preferred and performed technique for surgical weight loss and is the least likely to result in nutritional difficulties.

With this procedure, patients feel a very rapid onset of a sense of fullness, followed by a feeling of growing satiety, or indifference to food, shortly after the start of a meal.

For more information, we invite you to contact us, or call 909.806.1250.
