Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass, or Roux-en Y gastric bypass, is a procedure that creates a smaller pouch from a patient’s stomach and then reroutes the intestines. When the intestines are rerouted the body digests and absorbs food differently. This change in addition to a smaller pouch requiring the patient to eat less and feel fuller, results in weight loss.

Metabolic and bariatric surgery can lead to the improvement or resolution of various obesity related comorbid conditions. Several of these conditions include, but are not limited to, obstructive sleep apnea, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes. Additional outcomes will be discussed with you during your initial consultation with Dr. Birkedal.
