Best Laparoscopic roux-en-y Gastric Bypass surgeon in Sarita Vihar
Gastric bypass surgery is a procedure that creates a small pouch in the upper most part of the stomach to restrict food intake. The stomach pouch is then connected to lower segment of the small intestine, bypassing the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine) and some of the jejunum (the second part of the small intestine), delaying the mixing of ingested food and the digestive enzymes.
The net effect of this re-arrangement is a restricted intake of food and due to the bypass, some malabsorption- both of these leading to weight loss. However it is not only the restriction and malabsorption that leads to weight loss and correction of the co-morbidities in obese people. The intestines secrete a number of hormones specially when exposed to undigested food directly in their lumen that control and modify the metabolism in our body to correct diabetes, control blood pressure and also control hunger. These hormones also increase our resting metabolic rate thereby increasing energy consumption even at rest.
Roux-en- Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) Surgery in India is almost always done laparoscopically and is still the “Gold standard” in the world. All other procedures are usually compared to this when it comes to the results in terms of excess weight loss and resolution of co-morbidities.
