What is Gastric Bypass Surgery?

  • Gastric bypass is a bariatric procedure which involves dividing the stomach into a small upper pouch and a bigger lower pouch.
  • The small intestine is then re-arranged to connect to both the pouches.
  • By doing so, the food eaten bypasses parts of the stomach and the small intestine resulting in absorption of fewer calories.
  • Some of the other names of the procedure are RNY, Roux-en-Y, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and GBP.
  • Average length of hospital stay is about 2-3 nights.
  • To qualify for Roux-en-Y bypass in Mexico with MTC, your Body Mass Index (BMI) needs to be over 35 (with some exceptions for a lower BMI).
  • Please note that only the doctor can decide whether a candidate qualifies for gastric bypass or not after examining his/her medical questionnaire.

We also arrange for mini gastric bypass, a less complicated version of a traditional bypass, across major hospitals in Mexico.
