Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass – Gastric Bypass (RYGB)
Gastric bypass is an operation that disconnects stomach, consisting in creating a small reservoir in the upper part of the stomach (the so-called pouch). It is connected to the further part of small intestine, while the off part of the stomach still produces digestive juices to improve digestive system function. After the procedure, the stomach pouch has a capacity of about 30 ml. Thanks to this, the amount of food consumed is limited and it falls directly into the small intestine, which significantly reduces the time of absorption and digestion. The excess weight loss can be 65-85 percent in the first 6-12 months after surgery.
KCM Clinic is one of the few specialized hospitals in Central and Eastern Europe that uses modern three-dimensional laparoscopy technology during bariatric surgery. The use of the latest 3D imaging techniques allows the highest quality image visualization and safety of the procedure. As a result, patients are operated on with much greater accuracy and recover faster.
