Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric Bypass Surgery

Roux en Y Bypass Surgery in Tijuana Mexico

by Dr. Sergio Verboonen

In the 1960’s, Dr. Edward Mason and Dr. Chikashi Ito noticed that patients who underwent partial gastrectomy had a difficult time gaining weight. The gastric procedure was based on Dr. Roux’s turn of the century technique. In 1967, Drs. Mason and Ito performed the first bariatric Roux-en-Y surgery.ᅠ The availability of surgical staples allowed the surgeons to decrease the size of the stomach and bypass a portion of the small intestine.

The Roux en Y  gastric bypass is recommended when an individual is unable to lose weight from exercise and diet plans or they have critical obesity-related health conditions.  This type of weight loss surgery is performed to make changes to the digestive system for helping obese patients with their weight loss by restricting the amount food they can eat and therefore reducing the absorptions of nutrients by the body.


The Gastric Bypass Surgery (Roux En Y)



The Gastric Bypass belongs to the Restrictive group of weight loss surgeries


Dr. Sergio Verboonen works with certified and experienced surgeons to deliver a safe and successful Gastric Bypass Surgery in Tijuana Mexico.

The Gastric Bypass Surgery is a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive techniques which can help in decreasing the food consumption and also regulates the absorption of calories. It is very important for the patients to be aware of what they can expect, the possible risk of complexities, and the process of recovery.

What is The Surgery Process?

The Gastric Bypass Surgery is a bariatric surgical procedure with the highest success ratio. It includes the separation of your stomach into two individual pouches.

After making small sized laparoscopic incisions, the surgeon will start the treatment by making an incision diagonally at the upper part of the stomach.

This incision will split your stomach into two separate portions. Both stomach pouches will be sealed off from one another. The newly created upper pouch which is considerably smaller in size is linked with the lower part of the small intestine and the small intestine is reorganized to link with both stomach pouches.

To do this, the surgeon will make an incision in the lower part of the small intestine and will connect it with the new stomach pouch.  Although the Gastric Bypass Surgery poses a low risk of complexity as compared to other bariatric procedures, it is permanent and cannot be reversed.

You will Eat less and loose weight faster.

The amount of food you will be capable of consuming is limited because of the small size of the newly formed stomach pouch. This newly formed smaller stomach will be capable of holding less than a single cup of food.

The Gastric Bypass Restricts the absorption of nutrients

By restricting the consumption of nutrition and calories, a patient will be able to lose more weight in a less duration. In general, many patients who undergo the Gastric Bypass Surgery at the Obesity Goodbye Clinic reported losing around 15 pounds each month on average within a year after the surgery.

The reduction in the size of your stomach and redirection of the small intestine is intended to make you ingest fewer portions of food and digest the food in a swift manner.

Considering that the food will enter the lower part of the small intestine, most of the nutrients and the calories in the food will not be processed, hence the calorie absorption of the body is regulated which helps obese individuals to lose weight quickly and maintain healthy eating habits.
