Lap Gastric Bypass

 

Also called Lap Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, it is the "Gold Standard" and has withstood the test of time. In this procedure a small (30-ml) pouch of the stomach is created and joined to the intestine, bypassing a variable length of the intestine. Thus it restricts the capacity of the stomach AND bypasses the digestive tract. This procedure results in good weight loss (60% - 70% of excess body weight) but is associated with more nutritional problems. Hence a close follow-up with your doctor is required and you may be required to take vitamin and mineral supplements for a long period of time.
