What is Gastric Bypass Surgery?
Gastric bypass is a surgical process that can help people with obesity to lose weight and enhance their health. It reduces the size of the stomach and changes the way the stomach and small intestine absorb food, making it easier to lose weight. This procedure is also called a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. As we all know, Gastric bypass surgery is a type of bariatric, or weight loss surgery through which the physician makes changes to the stomach and small intestine.

How do Gastric Bypass perform in Iran?
The stomach is divided into two parts a short distance from the cardia valve (where the stomach connects to the Esophagus) in order to get the main goal which is food and calorie reduction.
The surgeon removes the lower part of the stomach. They then connect the small pouch that remains directly to the last part of the small intestine. Two parts are completely separated and are sewn to prevent leakage.
Bypass a large part of the stomach
The stomach is now of two parts. A very small part looking like a bag, and one other part that no food enters it. In fact, by gastric bypass, a large portion of the stomach from the digestive tract is removed and food passes through only a small portion of the stomach which reconnects to small intestine.
Connection of the free head of the duodenum to the intestine
The intestine free end, which is connected to the duodenum, is connected to the same part of the intestine as well, which is connected to the stomach so that digestive enzymes flow the intestine from the stomach and duodenum, and the process of absorbing nutrients continues.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass?
Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is believed as the ‘gold standard’ of bariatric surgery. It is the most frequently performed bariatric procedure worldwide. During Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery the surgeon:
- Makes an egg size stomach pouch by dividing the top of the stomach from the rest.
- So, the small intestine is divided, and the bottom end of the divided small intestine is brought up and connected to the new small stomach pouch.
- Finally, the top portion of the divided small intestine is connected to the small intestine further down so that the stomach acids and digestive enzymes from the bypassed stomach and first portion of your small intestine will eventually mix with the food.
