Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) has become a common procedure for the management of morbid obesity. However, learning to perform such a procedure may be difficult as it is made up of very technical operative steps in complex cases of overweight patients with a great amount of adipose tissue. In order to prevent complications, an operative strategy should be adopted, allowing for an easy and rapid acquisition of the technique. Each step is perfectly mastered and outlined. This video demonstrates a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass performed live, showing all the preoperative and operative patient settings. The surgical technique is thoroughly explained.
