What is Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)?

When non-surgical weight loss options like diet and exercise have been exhausted, surgical options may be the next approach. Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) is a very common procedure and can help avoid life-threatening weight-related conditions.

A gastric bypass procedure is performed by an expert that will create a smaller stomach which is then attached to the small intestine. Gastric bypass is a serious procedure and it’s recommended to continue with a healthy lifestyle after treatment to ensure long-term success.

Am I a Candidate for Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)?

Candidates for Gastric Bypass surgery have not been successful with other non-surgical treatments. Being overweight is not a qualifying factor by itself. Working with an expert through a screening process is necessary in order to determine candidacy.

A variety of factors that can indicate gastric bypass surgery may be a good option for patients, including:

  • Life-threatening illnesses or co-morbidities such as heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, type 2 diabetes, or obstructive sleep apnea
  • A body mass index of 40 or higher
  • Agreeing to strive for a healthier lifestyle post-procedure
