Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass is a procedure of bariatric or weight-loss surgery. Bariatric surgeries are a group of surgical procedures aimed at helping morbidly obese patients to lose weight. Roux-En-Y is one of the most commonly performed bariatric surgeries. It can be performed by two methods-conventional and banded.
Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass surgery involves two steps:
Banded Roux-en Y Gastric Bypass is less common than the conventional method. Here a silicone ring is placed around the gastric pouch above the point where the stomach and the second part of the intestine, called the jejunum, are connected. This helps to reduce weight as the amount of food that can enter the stomach is restricted due to the banding. Our hospital is the best for Banded Roux-en Y Gastric Bypass Surgery in Navi Mumbai.
Leakage of the stomach contents can occur along the stapled lines and the sites of surgical sutures. This can lead to infections and abscesses or obstruction in the digestive tract due to scar formation. We maintain strict aseptic precautions during all steps of the procedure to ensure minimum to no complications. Additionally, nutritional deficiencies can occur as a part of the nutrient-absorbing site of the intestine is removed. We provide adequate nutritional supplements and guidelines as a part of our post-surgery follow-up to prevent it.
