What is the procedure involved in gastric bypass surgery?

The medical field considers Roux-en-Y (RNY) gastric bypass to be the golden standard of of bariatric surgery. It is a popular and common bariatric procedure, both in Australia and around the world. Dr Mastakov can perform this procedure using a laparoscopic (keyhole) approach.

Gastric bypass surgery essentially creates a small pouch from one part of the stomach. The surgery then diverts all the food you eat, making it bypass the stomach and a small portion of the small intestine. However, Dr Mastakov creates a small pouch from your stomach, all the food you eat still comes into contact with the stomach’s digestive juices. This allows all the nutrients in your food to be digested and absorbed.
