The Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass has the longest track record of all the Bariatric Surgeries available today. Due to its longevity and positive patient outcomes, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass is considered by top Doctors and Experts in the fields of Weight Loss and Obesity as the “Gold Standard” in Bariatric Surgery.
Gastric Bypass restricts food intake by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach. The pouch is then connected to a section of the small intestine, allowing food to bypass the lower stomach and the first two parts of the small intestine. This should be viewed as a permanent procedure; the Gastric Bypass may be reversed.

In most cases the surgery is performed laparoscopically, and is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed through a very small incision in the abdomen.

The average cost of getting a gastric bypass will vary depending on where you get the procedure, who is doing the procedure, and other factors. The average cost of getting a gastric bypass done in the USA is around $23,000. Getting gastric bypass in Mexico will reduce the costs greatly.
If you define success rate by how many patients lose weight after the procedure, the success rate is around 99%. On average, gastric bypass recipients lose 50-60% of their excess weight after a year. Those who do not lose weight from a gastric bypass procedure are usually taken in for revision surgery, which is likely to result in weight loss.
The majority of insurance providers in the USA cover gastric bypass, as it is a bariatric procedure and bariatric procedures are covered under most insurance schemes. However, make sure you clear it up with your insurance provider before committing to surgery.
Patients are put under general anesthesia during gastric bypass surgery, so patients will not feel any sort of pain. Post-surgery, patients are given mild pain medicine for abdominal pain. Patients who have severe abdominal pain after surgery are in the minority.
