Open Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
The Open Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass surgery that MSO physicians perform is called the Sapala-Wood Micropouch® gastric bypass procedure, the result of 17 years of research, surgical innovations and refinement by CORI surgeons. In the procedure, the stomach is transected and separated from the pouch. Nothing is removed. A pouch the size of a grape is created, which virtually eliminates the complications of pouch enlargement, pouch ulceration, and staple line breakdown.
The Sapala-Wood Micropouch® procedure dramatically reduces food and calorie intake, and reduces the amount of food absorbed by the small intestine.

Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass
Minimally invasive surgery, also known as laparoscopic surgery, has been successfully adapted for gastric bypass surgery. Laparoscopic surgery uses a small camera in a tube known as a laparoscope, along with other small diameter tubes through which surgical tools are passed and used to perform the surgery. The laparoscopic camera allows the surgeon to see inside the abdomen via a television monitor as s/he performs the procedure.
In laparoscopic roux-en-y gastric bypass surgery, a small incision is made above the navel, and a special needle is inserted through which carbon dioxide is pumped to distend the abdomen. Then, other small-diameter surgical tools are inserted through other small incisions to allow the surgeon to perform the procedure. Laparoscopic gastric bypass requires only 5 to 6 incisions less than one inch long in the abdomen. Laparoscopic gastric bypass patients enjoy smaller scars and slightly lower rates of post-op complications. Patients typically have less post-op pain, require less pain medication, and may recover somewhat faster than those patients who have undergone open gastric bypass surgery. Weight loss and reduction in co-morbidities resulting from laparoscopic gastric bypass are comparable to rates resulting from open roux-en-y gastric bypass.

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (LAP-BAND)
Using the same laparoscopic tools and techniques as laparoscopic gastric bypass, another surgical weight loss procedure in increasing use is the laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, or LAP-BAND®. The LAP-BAND® system is an adjustable silicone elastomer band placed around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch. This procedure is strictly a restrictive procedure. Since the band is adjustable it allows the surgeon to make the pouch smaller or larger as needed. Unlike either open or laparoscopic roux-en-y gastric bypass procedures, the LAP-BAND® procedure is reversible.

Laparoscopic or open bariatric surgery, such as gastric banding or bypass is not an easy solution to morbid obesity and weight loss. It is a serious surgical procedure, involving health risks. To produce lasting weight loss it requires a long-term patient commitment to eating a healthy diet and following a regular program of physical exercise. Life-long use of nutritional supplements may also be necessary. So, before deciding, discuss your options fully with your doctor. © 2003-2017 Bariatric-Surgery.Info - Terms - Contact - Information - Resources
