Our Roux-en-Y surgery is performed laparoscopically, surgeons use specialized tools which are introduced in small incisions. They proceed to divide the upper stomach in two parts and connecting the small pouch left of the upper stomach to the intestines using a “Roux-en-Y” intestinal limb. Our procedure prevents bile from entering the upper portion of the stomach and allows digestion to bypass the remaining stomach portion and the first segment of the small intestines.

The surgery will reconfigure the patient’s digestive tract, giving them a feeling of fullness, even when eating small amounts of food. Because the tract bypasses the part of the intestines where calcium and iron are absorbed into the bloodstream. Patients still receive the nutritional benefits of the food they eat.
