Gastric Bypass

Roux-en-Y-Stomach Bypass

Most doctors consider the gastric bypass (RYGB or roux-en-Y gastric bypass) to be the gold-standard. The UCLA technique for gastric bypass (UCLA U-Loop) has been presented internationally, has been performed in more than 1,000 adults and is associated with a low complication rate.

The procedure has a proven track record for long-term weight-loss. Almost all weight-loss surgeries at UCLA are performed laparoscopically using minimally-invasive tools.
