Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass

Roux-en-Y-Gastric Bypass (Traditional & Laparoscopic)

The Roux-en-Y bypass is the most common gastric bypass procedure performed and considered the least complicated as it does not remove portions of the stomach.

The traditional Roux-en-Y-gastric bypass is performed through open surgery with one long incision.The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass can also be performed laparoscopically.

The laparoscopic Roux-en-Y-gastric bypass uses multiple smaller incisions (instead of one long incision) a laparoscopic tool is inserted, which offers a visual guide to the inside of the abdomen during the procedure.

The laparoscopic Roux-en-Y produces less scarring and lets you recover faster than the traditional Roux-en-Y-gastric bypass.
