Abstract

The technique of laparoscopic gastric bypass, Roux-en-Y, has been developed, and performed in five patients. The detailed technique and instrumentation is described. Early case results show comparable weight loss, and reduced morbidity and disability. Laparoscopic gastric bypass is a feasible alternative to the open operative procedure.
