To date, the surgical treatment of morbid obesity has been well standardized. Preoperative work-up in its whole (using radiology and endoscopy) helps us to demonstrate anatomical anomalies requiring specific surgical interventions. Here, we present the case of a morbidly obese female patient with a BMI of 46. A voluminous hiatal hernia was found during the preoperative work-up. A laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass combined with hiatal hernia repair is indicated.
