Gastric bypass surgery has become common among people. Thousands of people are doing research on this. So what is this surgery?
Various procedures are used in bariatric surgery. Patients undergoing bariatric surgery typically choose Gastric bypass surgery as their preferred treatment. How do gastric bypass procedures (R-YGB) work? What are the dangers associated with R-YGB surgery? These are frequently asked questions from gastric bypass patients. These and other concerns can be answered by learning more about the R-YGB technique. Memorial Health Group Obesity Surgery Specialists discussed gastric bypass treatment.
What is Gastric Bypass (RYGB) Surgery?
Laparoscopic gastric bypass is the most common type of combined surgery (R-YGB). Patients undergoing bariatric surgery are attracted to Gastric bypass because of its good results. In this treatment, nutrient absorption decreases when the stomach capacity is reduced, as the path through which the nutrients pass through the small intestine is shorter.
After separating the beginning of the stomach from the rest of the stomach, approximately 30-50 cc remains. This new stomach is attached to an extension of the patient’s small intestines. As a result, patients may consume less food while still feeling satisfied. At the same time, most of the high-calorie foods taken are not absorbed.
Patients who have undergone laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery can lose weight successfully. Patients who undergo volume-restrictive surgery because of their smaller stomach pouches feel full more quickly.
In Which Diseases Gastric Bypass (RYGB) Surgery Used?
Gastric Bypass (R-YGB) is primarily a morbid obesity surgery. Gastric Bypass (R-YGB) treatment can be applied in the presence of many diseases accompanying obesity. Type 2 diabetes is one of them. Positive results can be obtained with gastric bypass surgery in the surgical treatment of Type 2 diabetes patients who cannot be controlled.
How Is Gastric Bypass (RYGB) Surgery Performed?
- Gastric bypass is performed with laparoscopic surgery. Robotic surgery has become a viable alternative in recent years.
- One millimeter Incisions with a diameter of 4-6 millimeters are created during the operation.
- Gastric bypass surgery, like sleeve gastrectomy, reduces the size of the stomach. Almost the entire stomach is removed.
- A part of the stomach is attached to the core of the intestine, which is surgically divided into two, bypassing the 12 finger intestines. Since it stays in the body, it can perform its function in the other part of the body. In this way, the 12 finger intestines prevent food from passing by.
- Patients will consume less food and some of what they eat will be absorbed by going to treatment.
Before Gastric Bypass Surgery
Patients scheduled for surgery undergo a comprehensive evaluation. In addition to physical examinations, each patient is examined by endocrinology and psychiatry specialists before surgery.
After gastric bypass surgery, patients should stay in the hospital for at least four to six days after discharge. Endocrinologists, psychiatrists, and nutritionists work with a bariatric surgeon to monitor patients during the first year after surgery. The nutritionist plans the patient’s diet until the first check in the next release.

Nutritionists plan a diet for their patients before their first visit.
What are the Gastric Bypass Types?
Roux en Y stomach bags are more compact than this new version. This method, known as mini-gastrointestinal bypass, uses staples to create a “tube” from the stomach. Once this new gastric pouch begins, a 200-centimeter-long tube connects it to the small intestine. Compared to the Roux en Y type, this has only one connection and is therefore easier to build.
