Gastric bypass is a standard procedure in bariatric surgery. Indeed, all operative steps can be standardized, hence improving the performance of the procedure and its teaching. Here, we present a technique adapted from a simplified gastric bypass procedure demonstrated by Dr. Almino Ramos in Brazil. The interest of this technique lies in its reproducibility. The different steps can be easily standardized and can then be applied to patients of almost all body types. No detail should be overlooked. Standardization takes place as soon as trocars have been placed, until they are removed.
