Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass uses a staple to separate the large section of the stomach to help patients eat less and lose weight.


Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery is one of the most common forms of weight loss surgery in the U.S. In this procedure, the surgeon staples off a large section of the stomach, creating a tiny pouch, and then connects the small intestine to the pouch. Patients can't eat as much as they did before surgery because this small pouch can only accommodate a few ounces of food at a time. When the pouch fills with food a feeling of fullness occurs. The reconnected intestine causes the food to bypass part of the intestine so some of the nutrients and calories in food will not be absorbed.
