Lose Weight and Improve Your Health with Gastric Bypass Surgery

Gastric bypass is one of the most popular forms of weight loss surgery. This procedure can help limit your caloric intake, promote feelings of satiety, and facilitate significant weight loss. Gastric bypass surgery, also known as Roux-en-Y, works by creating a smaller stomach pouch and bypassing a section of the small intestines. These two techniques combine to make Roux-en-Y one of the most effective bariatric procedures available today.

 Dr. Juan Francisco Hidalgo and his highly trained bariatric team perform gastric bypass at Blue Medical Tower hospital in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. Dr. Hidalgo uses advanced laparoscopic surgical techniques to reduce recovery times. In addition, we have skilled anesthesiologists on staff to ensure your safety and comfort throughout treatment. 

The procedure


Gastric bypass surgery refers to a technique in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower “remnant” pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both.

The first thing that Dr. Juan F. Hidalgo will do is create a smaller stomach bag and for this he will have to divide the upper part of the stomach, leaving it approximately one ounce to limit the amount of food that can be consumed by the stomach. patient.

This type of bariatric surgery is an excellent alternative when diets and exercise have not been effective in the patient’s life, since they will not be able to eat more food than they need and, as a result, will facilitate weight loss.

The next step that Dr. Juan F. Hidalgo will carry out will be to divide the small intestine, bypassing the stomach and completely part of the gastrointestinal tract. Then the upper part of the intestine is joined with the lower part so that the enzymes and stomach acids can mix with the food that the patient consumes, considerably reducing the calories and nutrients that the patient ingests.
