Gastric Bypass

Do you struggle with weight loss despite diet and exercise?

Gastric bypass is an effective bariatric surgery that can help you lose those stubborn pounds and improve your health. 

Our team of expert bariatric surgeons in Tijuana, Mexico, can help you reduce your weight without breaking the bank. 

What Is Gastric Bypass?

Gastric bypass surgery (also called "Roux-en-Y") is a bariatric surgery that involves reducing the size of the stomach to a small pouch. A portion of small intestine is rerouted to this pouch.

Our bariatric specialists in Tijuana, Mexico, use laparoscopic techniques, which are less invasive and allow for quicker healing times. Gastric bypass surgery is typically considered for people suffering from severe obesity and health problems linked to obesity, such as type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, and heart disease.

What's the Difference Between Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve?

Gastric sleeve surgery permanently removes a large portion of your stomach, but the surgeon makes no other changes to your digestive tract with the gastric sleeve procedure. In contrast, gastric bypass both reduces your stomach size and reroutes the small intestines. Both procedures can be done via laparoscopic methods.

Some patients benefit more from gastric bypass for a variety of reasons. During your consultation with your bariatric surgeon, they will discuss the benefits and risks of both procedures and help determine which bariatric surgery is right for you.

How Does Gastric Bypass Surgery Help Me With Weight Loss?

Gastric bypass weight loss surgery using the Roux-en-Y method creates a smaller stomach pouch which helps you feel fuller with smaller portions.

During gastric bypass, the upper portion of your small intestine is bypassed; your stomach pouch will be connected to a lower segment of the small intestine.

Since your food will move from the stomach pouch directly to a lower section of the small intestine, the number of calories that can be absorbed will be reduced.

By both eating less and absorbing fewer calories from food consumed, patients are able to achieve significant, long-term weight loss.
