Gastric Bypass Requirements

Gastric Bypass in Orlando

Welcome to BodyByBariatrics, your premier destination for bariatric surgery in Orlando, FL! If you’re considering bariatric surgery, it’s essential to meet certain criteria before undergoing the procedure.

The Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass (LRYGB), one of our offered surgeries, requires patients to meet specific requirements. Candidates typically need to have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or higher, or a BMI of 35 or higher with significant obesity-related health issues, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

The Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass (LRYGB) reduces your stomach from the size of a football to that of a thumb, creating a new pouch that’s only about 5% of its former size. The remaining 95% of the stomach is still there, but it’s bypassed from directly interacting with food.

The bypassed stomach continues to produce digestive juices and enzymes, which mix with food at the “Y”-shaped connection further down the digestive tract. Gastric Bypass typically takes about an hour to perform and is often an outpatient (same-day discharge) procedure for well-suited patients.
