Gastric bypass is one of the most common procedures in bariatric surgery. The main steps of this procedure are well codified, namely fashioning of a small-sized gastric pouch in contact with the esophagus, measuring of a biliary limb and of an alimentary limb, gastrojejunal anastomosis and jejunojejunal anastomosis at the foot of the loop. The Da Vinci™ robotic Surgical System is particularly suited for manual anastomoses. This video demonstrates the use of the robot to perform gastrojejunal and jejunojejunal anastomoses.
