Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass Surgery offers a successful combination of weight control with minimal nutritional or other risk, when follow up and nutritional guidelines are followed. Many obesity experts consider the surgery to be the "Gold Standard" of modern obesity surgery the benchmark to which other bariatric operations are compared. The operation achieves its effects by creating a very small stomach, from which the rest of the stomach is divided and separated. The small intestine is "attached" to the new stomach, allowing the lower pan of the stomach to be bypassed. A thorough description, including diagrams, of the operation will be provided to you during your consultation or as part of the free seminar we encourage potential patients to attend. Suffice to say, that no bodily functions are altered as a result of the operation, and it is completely reversible if it ever needed to be. Complete descriptions with illustrations of the surgery are presented by your surgeon at time of consultation. Following surgery, there is little interference with normal absorption of food. The operation restricts food intake and reduces the feeling of hunger. The result is an early sense of "fullness" followed by a sense of satisfaction. Even though the portion size is small (2 to 6 ounces per serving), there is no hunger and no sense of being deprived. Patients continue to enjoy eating all types of food after surgery. They just eat a much smaller portion than they used to. The Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass is an excellent tool for achieving longterm control of morbid obesity (the state of being 100 or more pounds over ideal body weight). Weight loss of 80-100% is achievable by most patients, as internal and external outcome studies demonstrate. And maintenance of that weight loss is likely with adherence to a straight forward behavior regimen.

Morbid obesity is a chronic, lifelong, multifactorial, genetically-related disease of excessive fat storage with highly significant medical, psychological, social, physical and economic co-morbidities. As such, it also involves hereditary, biochemical, hormonal, environmental, behavioral, public health and cultural elements.

Morbid obesity is, therefore, an extreme health hazard which is rarely the result of an aberrant moral problem or addictive behavior. There is an extremely high incidence of failure to sustain even a 10 per cent long-term weight loss in morbidly obese patients with any form of non-operative treatment. Bariatric surgery, on the other hand, has been shown to be the most effective means to aid in management and prophylaxis of the life-threatening complications and severe degenerative problems of morbid obesity. It is indicated due to the ineffectiveness of non-operative treatment methods for morbid obesity, the high risk of untreated morbid obesity, and the safety and effectiveness of operative treatment. Safe, effective bariatric operative procedures increase the longevity and quality of life in morbidly obese patients. Such surgery is performed as treatment for the co-morbidities of morbid obesity. Weight loss, while an essential component of this process, is only incidental to these goals, as is any possible cosmetic outcome.

Patients with sleep apnea, obesity hypoventilation, cardiac failure, or other life-threatening complications may require emergency admission and care. An operation can then be planned at a time when the patient`s condition is stable with adequate cardiorespiratory reserve.

Size discrimination condemns morbidly obese people to be excluded from access to medically necessary, quality care. Such discrimination and consequent exclusion is unacceptalbe. There is, therefore, no justification in requiring morbidly obese individuals to participate in long-term weight loss programs or requiring them to surmount comparable barriers as a prerequisite for approval of bariatric surgery, unless the surgeon`s judgement precludes same. -----------------------------------------------
