Gastric Bypass in Las Vegas, Nevada
According to two organizations the American Society Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and the National Institutes of Health, Roux-en-Y (pronounced ROO-en-why) gastric bypass surgery has been historically the most popular bariatric surgery in the United States.
During this procedure, Dr. Tom Umbach creates a small stomach pouch and then constructs a “bypass” for food. The bypass allows food to skip the large excluded stomach and the first part of the small intestine.
