We report a case of a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) in a morbidly obese patient with situs inversus totalis. Current experience with bariatric surgery in patients with situs inversus totalis shows that they can be operated on safely. The open approach in this case of a difficult anatomy may be beneficial and safer for the patient. The technique itself requires only minor modifications. The results of bariatric surgery in terms of weight loss are comparable to the general population of morbidly obese patients after RYGB.
