What Is Gastric Bypass?
Gastric bypass, also known as Roux-en-Y surgery, is a bariatric procedure in which a small pouch is made from your stomach. Your stomach pouch is then connected to a lower section of your small intestine. After gastric bypass surgery, the food you eat goes into your stomach pouch and then directly into your small intestine, bypassing much of your stomach and the first section of your small intestine.
This weight loss surgery helps patients feel fuller with less food and for longer periods. Because it also decreases the amount of calories your body can absorb, it leads to fast weight loss.
Gastric bypass surgery can also help treat or manage weight-related medical conditions like:
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Heart disease

"Dr. Sergio and his team did a fantastic job on my gastric bypass surgery! They were caring and responsive to my comfort and needs... The entire package, Hotel, Hospital, Surgery, and Post Op care was supreme... After a day in the hospital, I stayed two days (as part of the package) in the Hotel right on the Plaza Neptune and walked every day around the marina boardwalk among the yachts and other wonderful sites. There was really no pain to speak of... I feel like I have my life back. I would suggest this surgery to anyone feeling the stranglehold of weight comorbidities and pre-diabetes... FIVE STARS all the way!" Brian

How Gastric Bypass Is Performed
Roux-en-Y surgery with us in Puerto Vallarta involves several steps:
Gastric bypass is performed laparoscopically for a safer procedure, faster recovery, and minimal scarring.
The Results of Gastric Bypass and How You Can Help
Because your stomach pouch will be smaller, you will have to eat a diet of nutrient-dense foods once you are cleared by your doctor. We recommend protein, fruits, and vegetables in six small portions each day. You will also have to supplement your diet with vitamins and minerals.
Starting a few days after your surgery, walking for short periods every day can help reduce the chances of developing blood clots. Once you've healed from your surgery, we encourage you to gradually take up low-intensity workouts to aid in your weight loss.
Taking Advantage of Our Services
With our bariatric procedure packages, we offer a special liquid diet before and after surgery, nutritionist consultations, and follow-up appointments with a surgeon. These services can help put you on the path to success in your weight loss journey.
