The nature of the gastric bypass surgery involves dividing the upper stomach into two portions using surgical stapling, and connecting the resulting small pouch of the upper stomach to the intestines using a “Roux-en-Y” intestinal limb. Most of our gastric bypass procedures today are performed by laparoscopic, with the surgeon using specialized tools through minimally invasive small incisions, resulting in less bleeding, less pain, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times than with traditional open bypass surgery. The modern Roux-en-Y bypass (RYGBP) procedure prevents bile from entering the upper part of the stomach and esophagus, an uncomfortable reflux mechanism associated with older forms of the surgery, and allows digestion to bypass the remaining stomach portion and the first segment of the small intestines.

The resulting reconfiguration of the digestive tract gives patients a feeling of fullness, even when they eat small amounts of food. Because the reconfigured digestive tract bypasses the part of the intestines where calcium and iron are absorbed into the bloodstream, anemia and osteoporosis are common long-term complications of gastric bypass surgery. Bypass patients must therefore take lifelong calcium and iron supplements to guard against these two conditions.

The proximal gastric bypass, RYGBP, results in little malabsorption — that is, patients still receive the nutritional benefits of the foods they eat. However, some surgeons modify the RYGBP to incorporate an element of malabsorption to increase weight loss in some critically obese patients.

Typically, half of a gastric bypass patient’s weight loss occurs in the first six months after surgery, with weight loss peaking at 18-24 months. Data indicates that gastric bypass is effective at improving and even curing many obesity-related co-morbidities, including adult onset diabetes (also called insulin resistant diabetes or type 2), hypertension, high cholesterol, arthritis, venous stasis disease, bladder incontinence, liver disease, certain types of headaches, heartburn, sleep apnea and many other disorders.
