The Gastric Bypass Advantage
Gastric Bypass today is a major weight-loss surgery that uses minor incisions.
Unlike conventional “open” gastric bypass surgery, which often requires a foot-long incision, laparoscopic Gastric Bypass surgery avoids any large incisions.
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass surgery (Roux-en-Y) is generally considered to be the best and a long-term surgical procedure for the treatment of morbid obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the functional portion of the stomach to a pouch about the size of an egg and by bypassing about 100 cm. to 150 cm. of small intestine.
What is Gastric Bypass Procedure
In a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the stomach is made smaller by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach using surgical staples or a plastic band. The resulting pouch is only about the size of a walnut and can hold about one ounce of food. After the pouch has been created, most of the stomach and part of the intestines are bypassed by attaching (usually stapling) part of the intestine to the small stomach pouch. As a result, a gastric bypass patient cannot eat as much and absorbs fewer nutrients and calories.
Combining Restrictive and Mal-absorptive elements
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass works by combining both restrictive and mal-absorptive elements.
The restrictive element can be achieved by stapling the stomach into two sections. The top section becomes a small pouch that serves as the “new” stomach. The small size of this newly formed stomach is so reduced that it “restricts” or limits the amount of food intake and also provides a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller portions of food. The lower section of the stomach no longer receives, stores, and mixes food but remains functional by continuing to secrete digestive juices.
The mal-absorptive element in gastric bypass is achieved by surgically dividing the small intestine in a certain area. Once divided, the lower part of the intestine (jejunum) is pulled up to directly connect to the small pouch or “new” stomach. As a result, when food is eaten, it enters the “new” stomach, then travels into the jejunum, first “bypassing” the upper part of the intestine. The effect of bypassing the upper portion of the intestine decreases the amount of calories and nutrients that are absorbed into the body.
The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass may be performed with a laparoscopy rather than through an open incision. This procedure uses several small incisions and three or more laparoscopic, small thin tubes with video cameras attached, to visualize the inside of the abdomen during the operation.
