Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) — pronounced "roo-en-why" — is the most commonly performed weight-loss procedure in the United States. It has been in practice for over 30 years and provides an excellent balance of weight loss and manageable side effects. The operation can be performed laparoscopically (small incisions to the abdomen) or robotically (computer-assisted surgery used to aid surgical procedures).
Restriction: The surgeon separates the upper portion of the stomach from the lower portion. The upper portion (or the "pouch") is then connected to a limb of the small intestine called the "Roux limb." The new stomach pouch restricts the amount of food you can eat, making you feel full after eating only a tiny amount.
Mal-Absorption: Once the smaller pouch is created, the surgeon reroutes your digestive system to bypass the more significant part of your stomach and small intestine. The bypass results in you absorbing fewer calories and nutrients from your food (malabsorption).
As a result, all the abnormal hormones are reduced and the “good” hormones are boosted, which signals your brain and body to gradually lose weight. This mechanism also improves insulin resistance in your body, resulting in marked improvement in your diabetes. Hunger is greatly reduced, craving for carbohydrates is reduced and the amount of food that can be consumed is also reduced and the absorption of calories and nutrients is also decreased.
