Procedures - Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Bypass

This is a slightly more complicated operation where the stomach volume is reduced dramatically. In addition the small bowel is divided and part of the bowel is attached to the small stomach pouch. This differs from gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy because there is a component of malabsorbtion.

Your doctor will discuss these options with you. Not every patient will be suitable for each operation. Careful history taking, examination and personal preference will be relevant in making the correct choice.
