What is roux-en-y gastric bypass (RYGB)?
Lose Weight and Maintain a Healthy Weight Longterm
Roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery (RYGB) is a medical weight loss surgery that involves using staples to create a small pouch in the stomach. Once the stomach pouch is created, the small intestine is directly attached to the pouch. After having the RYGB procedure, the smaller stomach pouch causes you to feel full more quickly and for a longer period of time.
It also causes food to bypass a portion of the small intestine, limiting the number of calories absorbed into your body. At the Weight Loss and Wellness Center, we offer gastric bypass surgery in addition to a number of other weight loss and weight-related health condition treatments to help our patients gain control of their weight and health.
