Gastric Bypass at Surgimed in Ensenada, Mexico
A gastric bypass is a bariatric surgical procedure which consists of splitting the stomach into two pouches. After the stomach has been divided, the surgeon rearranges the small intestine that it connects to both pouches. This is when the surgeons experience and handy-work come into play. Depending on the specifics of each operation, several ways of attaching the small intestine to the newly created stomach ”rooms” have been devised.
Gastric bypass procedures
Gastric bypass, Roux en-Y (proximal) refers to the method through which the small intestine is rearranged in a Y-configuration in order to permit the outflow of food from the small upper stomach pouch.
Gastric bypass, Roux en-Y (distal) is the technique through which the Y-configuration of the small intestine is moved further down the gastrointestinal tract in order to create a smaller path along which less of the fats and proteins from food can be absorbed.
"Mini-gastric bypass" (MGB) is a laparoscopically performed surgery through which a long narrow tube-shaped ”room” is made out of the right side of the stomach and then connected to the small gut.
