Gastric Bypass

Laparoscopic Roux-en-y gastric bypass – a preferred weight loss invasive surgical procedure for morbidly obese patients when all the weight loss efforts through lifestyle changes, dietary and physical activity plans, and medications have been in vain.

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is one of the oldest bariatric surgical interventions that offers numerous benefits for overweight patients, and shows significant effectiveness in the treatment of comorbidities such as diabetes. It is a keyhole procedure usually performed with a telescope; hence called laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery. Surgeons have been performing this type of bypass operation for as long as 40 years, for it allows the body to drop large quantities of excess weight rapidly -  even faster than the gastric band and gastric sleeve procedures - keeps the annoying pounds off for a longer period of time, and helps patients get back to their health and vitality. 

How Does Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Procedure Work?

When the patient undergoes a gastric bypass at American Hospital in Dubai, the stomach is completely divided with a stapler, and is transformed into a small pouch, that functions as a new stomach. Furthermore, the small intestine is divided and the gastric bypass surgeon brings up and joins the divided end to the new stomach. Since the most part of a stomach and small intestine is bypassed, the patient is now unable to absorb as many calories as (s)he used to before getting the stomach and intestinal bypass done. The patient now feels full more quickly and doesn’t urge for food for a longer span of time.

Advantages of Gastric Bypass:

Unlike other bariatric procedures, the gastric bypass surgery doesn’t encompass any foreign devices to be inserted into the body, so there is no risk of any leak or break. Additionally, the procedure offers more rapid weight loss than gastric band and gastric sleeve procedures.

Gastric Bypass and Diabetes:

As diabetes is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, it is important to embrace the medical fact that the laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery could be an effective treatment for patients suffering from type-II diabetes. Interestingly, studies have found that the patients who get the gastric bypass operation done endure a reduction in their diabetes, only days after their surgery.
