Gastric By-pass Surgery > Advantages of the Rouz-en-Y Bypass

Most patients have a very impressive success rate with this procedure. On average, weight loss can average 80 percent of excess body weight one year after surgery.

Other advantages:

  • The average excess weight loss after the Roux-en-Y procedure is generally higher in a compliant patient than with restrictive procedures.
  • Studies show that after 10 to 14 years, patients on average have only gained back 10 to 13 percent of the lost weight.
  • Significant sustained weight loss
  • Blood sugar levels that become completely normal within 1 year of surgery
  • Lower or normal blood pressure
  • Lower or normal cholesterol levels
  • Relief from sleep apnea, acid reflux and urinary stress incontinence
  • Less arthritis pain and improved mobility
  • Increased energy and ability to exercise
  • Improved mood and self-esteem
  • Arrested progression of heart disease
  • Improvement of many lung conditions
  • Exercise endurance
