Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is a mainstay of management of morbid obesity, particularly in individuals with significant weight-related medical comorbidities, but it also represents an effective therapeutic option for select patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The purpose of this chapter is to describe the appropriate population that may benefit from RYGB as management of GERD, specific surgical techniques for the performance of REYGB, perioperative management, and management of special situations and postoperative complications.
