The gastric bypass has been the gold standard of bariatric surgery for decades since its inception in the 1960s. The gastric bypass is a surgical procedure that can best be thought of as altering the plumbing of your stomach. By creating a new stomach, or ‘pouch’, the roux-en-y gastric bypass (not to be mistaken with the SADI / mini gastric bypass) significantly restricts the amount of food that a patient is able to intake at one time.
Unlike the gastric sleeve, no part of the stomach is removed during the gastric bypass. Instead, the majority of your stomach is simply separated from your new pouch, but functional as it still provides gastric acids essential to the digestive process. Gastric Bypass patients can expect to lose up to around 70% of their excess body weight over a two year period. Full recovery from the procedure typically occurs within 6 – 8 weeks and depending on your job you can get back to work within 2 – 3 weeks.
