Gastric bypass, also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is a type of weight-loss surgery that includes creating a small pouch from the stomach and connecting the newly created pouch directly to the small intestine. After gastric bypass, swallowed food will go into this small pouch of stomach and then directly into the small intestine, thereby bypassing most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine.

Why Gastric By-pass ​

Gastric bypass is done to help you lose excess weight and decrease your risk of  life threatening weight related health problems, including: 

  • Heart disease
  • Infertility
  • High blood pressure
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cancer
  • High cholesterol

Gastric bypass is typically done after you’ve tried to lose weight by improving your diet and exercise habits.​

Who Is a Suitable Candidate For Gastric By-pass

Generaly, gastric bypass and other weight-loss surgeries might be an option for you if: 

  • Your body mass index is 40 or higher (extreme obesity).
  • Your BMI is 35 to 40(obesity), and you have a serious weight-related health problem, such as severe sleep apnea, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure.  In some cases, you may qualify for certain types of weight-loss surgery if your BMI is 30 to 35 and you have serious weight related health problems. 

But gastric bypass can’t be for everyone who is overweight. You may need to meet certain medical guidelines to qualify for weight-loss surgery. You likely will have an extensive screening process to see if you qualify. You must also be willing to make permanent changes to lead a healthier lifestyle. You may be required to participate in long term follow plans that include following your nutrition, behavior, and your medical conditions.

How you prepare

As with any many surgery, gastric bypass and other weight loss surgeries pose potential health risks, both in the short term and long term. Risks associated with the surgical procedure are similar to any; 

  • Infections
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia
  • Blood clots
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Leaks in your gastrointestinal system
  • Lung or breathing problems

Longer term risks and complications of gastric bypass can include; 

  • Dumping syndrome, causing diarrhea, nausea or vomiting
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Hernias
  • Gallstones
  • Malnutrition
  • Stomach perforation
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Ulcers 

Rarely, complications of gastric bypass can be fatal.

How you prepare

In the weeks leading up to your surgery, you may be required to start a physical activity program and to give up any tobacco use. Before your procedure, you may have restrictions on eating and drinking and which medications you can take. Now is a good time to plan for your recovery after surgery.

What you can expect

Gastric bypass surgery is done in the hospital. Depending on your recovery, your hospital stay is typically one to three days but may last longer.

During the procedure

You will be given general anesthesia before your surgery begins. Anesthesia is medicine that keeps you asleep and comfortable during surgery. 
The specifics of your gastric bypass depend on your individual situation and the doctor’s practices. Some surgeries are done with traditional large (open) incisions in your abdomen. However, most are performed laparoscopically, which involves inserting instruments through multiple small incisions in the abdomen.

After making the incisions with the open or laparoscopic technique, the surgeon cuts across the top of your stomach, sealing it off from the rest of your stomach. The resulting pouch is about the size of a walnut and can hold only about an ounce of food. Normally, your stomach can hold about 3 pints of food.

Then, the surgeon cuts the small intestine and sews part of it directly onto the pouch. Food then goes into this small pouch of stomach and then directly into the small intestine sewn to it. Food bypasses most of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine, and instead enters directly into the middle part of your small intestine.

Surgery usually takes a few hours. After surgery, you awaken in a recovery room, where medical staff monitors you for any complications.

After the procedure

Immediately after gastric bypass surgery, you may have liquids but no solid food as your stomach and intestines begin to heal. You’ll then follow a special diet plan that changes slowly from liquids to pureed foods. After that, you can eat soft foods, then move on to firmer foods as your body is able to tolerate them. 
You may have many restrictions or limits on how much and what you can eat and drink. Your doctor will recommend you take vitamin and mineral supplements after surgery, including a multivitamin with iron, calcium and vitamin B-12. 
You’ll also have frequent medical checkups to monitor your health in the first several months after weight-loss surgery. You may need laboratory testing, bloodwork and various exams. 
You may experience changes as your body reacts to the rapid weight loss in the first three to six months after gastric bypass, including: 

  • Body aches
  • Feeling tired, as if you have the flu
  • Feeling cold
  • Dry skin
  • Hair thinning and hair loss
  • Mood changes


Gastric bypass can provide long-term weight loss. The amount of weight you lose depends on your type of surgery and your change in lifestyle habits. It may be possible to lose about 70%, or even more, of your excess weight within two years. 
In addition to weight loss, gastric bypass may improve or resolve conditions often related to being overweight, including:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Infertility

Gastric bypass can also improve your ability to perform routine daily activities, which could help improve your quality of life.

When weight loss surgery doesn't work

It’s possible to not lose enough weight or to regain weight after weight-loss surgery. This weight gain can happen if you don’t follow the recommended lifestyle changes. If you frequently snack on high-calorie foods, for instance, you may have inadequate weight loss. To help avoid regaining weight, you must make permanent healthy changes in your diet and get regular physical activity and exercise.
