RNY Gastric Bypass

Our Treatment

RNY is a Treatment weight-loss procedure used to treat severe obesity and related health conditions. During RNY, the treatment creates a small stomach pouch by dividing the stomach and connecting it directly to the small intestine, bypassing a portion of the stomach and the upper part of the small intestine. The procedure is usually performed laparoscopically, using minimally invasive techniques, which can result in shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, and reduced risk of complications compared to traditional open treatment. The small stomach pouch restricts the amount of food that can be consumed at one time, leading to reduced calorie intake. Bypassing a portion of the small intestine reduces the absorption of calories and nutrients from food, contributing to additional weight loss.
