In this highly educational live video, Dr. Kelvin Higa demonstrates a laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass using a hand-sewn gastrojejunal anastomosis. This technical maneuver seems extremely simple. However, it necessitates great dexterity and reflects long experience. All operative steps are organized around a rigorous strategy where nothing is left to chance. This video demonstrates the perfect command of all technical steps.
