We report the case of a morbidly obese patient with situs inversus totalis presenting for laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGBP). The operative technique is detailed and we recommend the use of a mirror image approach to all parts of the operation. Consequently, the operative time is only moderately longer than usual. Laparoscopic RYGBP can be safely performed in patients with situs inversus.
