1. The quick facts about the laparoscopic Roux-en Y Gastric Bypass:

    Most common weight loss operation performed in the United States;
    Offers the best weight loss
    Provides restriction and malabsorption
    Requires close follow-up to prevent nutritional deficiencies
    The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass operation has been used since the late 1960’s to achieve significant weight-loss in people affected by morbid obesity. The operation leads to weight-loss for two different reasons: A small stomach pouch reduces the amount you can eat (restriction) and A small amount of intestine is bypassed so you don’t absorb all of the food that you eat (malabsorption).
