Gastric Bypass Procedure

Provides surgeons with the opportunity to perform advanced tasks including creation of the gastric pouch, measurement and division of the jejunum, gastrojejunal anastomosis and enteroenterostomy anastomosis.

Trainees practice the technical aspects of laparoscopic Roux-en Y creation and jejunojejunostomy and gain an in-depth understanding of intra-operative problems during lap bypass surgery and how to avoid them.

Familiarity with instruments is gained by experiencing a variety of procedure specific surgical instruments, while instructional movies enhance knowledge of the procedure.
