Obesity is a chronic condition associated with the accumulation of excessive fat in the body. Obesity is designated with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 and over. Gastric bypass surgery, also known as Roux-en-Y (RNY for short), is a bariatric procedure that helps slim down by changing how your stomach and small intestine handle the food you eat.
Gastric Bypass Surgery is recognized as the “Gold Standard” of bariatric surgery worldwide. It promotes weight loss by combining restrictive and malabsorptive components. The board-certified surgeon creates a tiny stomach pouch and then bypasses a portion of the digestive tracts.
Unlike diet and exercise, gastric bypass is a fast, powerful, and long-term solution to fighting obesity as it changes the body’s metabolic thermostat. Patients can lose over 78% of their excess body weight in 1.5 to 2 years after the operation.
