What is Gastric Bypass Surgery?
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery, also known to as (RNY surgery or gastric bypass), is one of the most sought-after weight loss surgeries. This type of surgery reduces the size of the stomach by dividing the stomach into two sections and creating a new much smaller stomach called a pouch. The new stomach pouch will hold approximately two ounces of food. This smaller stomach allows you to eat less at each meal and chew your food more slowly, which helps you to lose weight. You will feel satisfied after eating small amounts of food in the same way you would feel full after eating a large meal before your surgery. And, the calories bypass your stomach and are not absorbed into your system which also aids in your weight loss.
During the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, the stomach is reduced by using surgical staples to make a little pouch at the top portion of the stomach. Through bypassing the main stomach, the new pouch is attached to the center of the small intestine. This laparoscopic surgery typically takes about two hours using general anesthesia. Surgical staples are used in place of traditional stitches that help to prevent leaking and post surgery complications. Expect to spend between 2 to 3 days in the hospital. The majority of people can resume their regular activities in about 4 weeks. You will be placed on a liquid diet for the first few weeks after surgery. Then, you will slowly transition to pureed food to softened food and then to solid foods.
The outcomes of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery are usually nothing short of amazing. Over the years, the majority of patients have lost a minimum of 65% of their additional weight and they have maintained their weight loss. Following an exercise routine will result in better and quicker results. This surgery has been shown to have positive results when it comes to: high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and back pain in the majority of the patients. And, all gastric bypass surgery patients will have a greater quality of life and more self confidence in their appearance and interactions with others.
As with any weight loss surgery, it is important to remember that Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery is a surgical method to help patients to lose weight. It is not a magical treatment. To be able to sustain long term weight loss results, a patient needs to change his or her lifestyle and the way they think of food by eating healthy foods in moderation and have a steady workout routine. Only those patients that are a minimum of 100 pounds overweight and have failed with other diets can qualify for gastric bypass surgery.
Benefits of Gastric Bypass Surgery:
– Weight loss of 65 to 80% of excess body weight
– Hyperlipidemia is corrected in over 70% of patients.
(hyperlipidemia is the condition of unusual elevated levels of any or all lipids and/or lipoproteins in the blood)
– Essential Hypertension is relieved in over 70% of patients and medication is usually reduced in the remainder.
– Obstructive Sleep Apnea is improved with weight loss snoring is improved in most patients
– Type 2 diabetes is reversed in up to 90% of patients
– Gastroesophageal reflux illness is relieved from the time of procedure in almost all patients.
– Venous thromboembolic disease signs such as leg swelling are improved
– Lower back pain and joint pain are relieved following weight loss
- Patients who have a BMI of 40 or higher and have failed to lose weight through change of diet or exercise
- Patients with a BMI of 35-40 who also have health conditions such as diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure or osteoarthritis
Number of days in hospital: 1 – 3 days
Average length of stay abroad: 2 weeks
Flying after surgery can increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and patients will need to be cleared by the surgeon before flying.
How it is performed:
The patient is administered with a general anesthetic before the surgery begins. Roux-en-Y is the most common type of gastric bypass surgery.
The procedure is traditionally performed as open surgery and involves readjusting the size of the stomach so that only a small part of the stomach functions. This new, smaller stomach pouch is significantly smaller in size and is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine, bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine.
The procedure is increasingly performed laparoscopically, which involves inserting a surgical telescope through several small incisions, which is guided by a camera and has surgical instruments attached to perform the surgery. Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than open surgery and has quicker healing times in comparison.
