Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) has become a common procedure for the management of morbid obesity. However, learning to perform such a procedure is difficult as it is made up of very technical operative steps in complex cases of overweight patients with a great amount of adipose tissue. The authors have acquired great experience and an acute sense of didactics. As such, they implemented an operative strategy allowing for an easy and rapid acquisition of the technique. Each step is perfectly mastered and outlined. This method was taught to numerous surgeons worldwide and proved its efficacy.
