On a path to the new you
With laparoscopic gastric bypass Roux-en-Y (RNY), you get the benefits of a minimally invasive weight loss procedure. Plus, the procedure can lead to rapid, consistent and positive weight loss results. In fact, most patients experience 65 to 80 percent loss of their excess weight within the first year, although results vary.
Because it's a minimally invasive technique, laparoscopic gastric bypass RNY requires smaller incisions and allows faster recovery time, minimal scarring and less overall discomfort than traditional gastric bypass RNY surgeries. At Goshen Physicians Center for Weight Reduction, we consider your individualized needs and condition to determine the most appropriate procedure for you.
How it works
During laparoscopic gastric bypass RNY surgery, a surgeon inserts an optical instrument, called a laparoscope, into the abdomen. A sophisticated camera attached to the laparoscope allows the surgeon to operate using advanced monitors and equipment.
The surgeon sections off a portion of your stomach, creating a small pouch. This pouch bypasses the upper digestive tract and connects to a portion of the small intestine. Remaining sections of your stomach are not removed, only shut off from the newly formed pouch.
With a smaller stomach pouch, you’re able to hold less food. Therefore, you’re satisfied with smaller portion sizes and less likely to eat between meals. The procedure also significantly reduces fat absorption, further speeding up the weight loss process.
Laparoscopic gastric bypass RNY has been successful in reversing many of the health problems associated with obesity. In fact, many patients have normalized their blood pressure and blood sugar levels and no longer need medicine following surgery.
