Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass (RGB) Surgery: Weight Loss
Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most time-tested procedures and the gold standard in weight loss surgery. In most cases it can be performed with a robotic surgical system or laparoscopically for minimal invasion and quicker recovery.
- Gastric bypass patients typically return to work between two to four weeks
- Most weight loss occurs over the first 12 to 24 months with an eventual 70% reduction in excess weight
- Gastric bypass improves many health conditions associated with being overweight
