Gastric bypass or minimally invasive gastric bypass surgery

The gastric bypass limits the amount of food that you can eat and digest and at the same time not all the nutrients you ingest will be absorbed and used by your body. In the team of Dr. Pablo Garcia we performed a gastric bypass using a minimally invasive approach called Roux-en-Y procedure or as a second similar option with satisfactory results and less risky the mini gastric bypass.

In a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the stomach becomes smaller by creating a small pouch in the upper part of the stomach with surgical staples. The resulting bag is small in size and may contain approximately one ounce of food. After the pouch has been created, most of the stomach and part of the intestines are overlooked by fixing (usually stapling) part of the intestine to the small pouch of the stomach. As a result, a gastric bypass patient can not eat as much and absorbs less nutrients and calories.

This minimally invasive laparoscopic method allows less time in the hospital and a faster recovery and healing time.

Advantage:

  • Rapid initial weight loss
  • The approach is a minimally invasive approach
  • A slightly greater total average weight loss is reported than with purely restrictive procedures
  • Rapid improvement or resolution of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome

Recovery timeline

  • The stay in the hospital is usually from 24 to 72 hours
  • Many patients return to normal activity in two and a half weeks
  • Complete surgical recovery usually occurs within approximately three weeks
