RNY Gastric Bypass surgery is one of the surgical techniques used in the treatment of morbidly obese patients. In the treatment of obesity, RNY Gastric Bypass surgery is the primary surgical technique applied to patients with a body mass index above 35 and defined as morbidly obese, despite diet and exercise accompanied by a dietitian.
Before undergoing RNY Gastric Bypass surgery, patients must have been treated with a dietitian and a sports coach at least three times in order to get rid of their excess weight. Despite all this, if the patient has not been able to lose weight and gains back the weight quickly, he should apply to general surgery. In addition to being overweight, other medical diseases such as blood pressure and diabetes must also be seen. RNY Gastric Bypass surgery is one of the effective and safe operations in the treatment of obesity.
How is RNY Gastric Bypass surgery performed?
RNY Gastric Bypass surgery is both volume-limiting and malabsorption. With this surgery, the amount of food people eat is restricted and the absorption of the eaten foods is reduced. The pouch created in the stomach by surgery is 30-40 cc. Thanks to this newly formed stomach, the person can be satiated quickly with less food. It provides weight loss thanks to the restriction and less absorption of nutrients and malabsorption effects obtained with a small stomach pouch. RNY Gastric Bypass is a surgery performed with a closed technique, with a short recovery period and effortless.
After the surgery, the patient starts to lose weight step by step. Treatment of other diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, which are seen together with obesity surgery, should also be started. After the operation, the patient loses an average of 50 – 80 kilos, and 80% is cured of diabetes and 70% from high blood pressure. After the operation, it is important to follow his diet and adopt new eating habits.
