Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is a type of bariatric surgery that aims to help individuals with obesity achieve significant weight loss and improve their overall health.

The procedure involves creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach and connecting it directly to the small intestine, bypassing a portion of the stomach and upper intestine. The small pouch restricts the amount of food that can be consumed, while the bypassed portion of the stomach and intestine reduces the absorption of calories and nutrients.

This combination helps individuals achieve significant weight loss and can also improve conditions associated with obesity, such as type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.

It is important to consult with a skilled surgeon who can provide detailed information and assess your eligibility for Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. They will guide you through the procedure, explain the potential risks and benefits, and provide comprehensive support throughout your weight loss journey.
