Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass
The bypass procedure involves creating a small pouch of a stomach and moving part of the small intestine up, effectively “bypassing” part of the intestine. Not only does this limit the amount of food that can be consumed in one sitting, but it also limits the amount of intestine involved in digesting the food. Because only part of the intestine is involved, the body is able to absorb fewer calories from any food that is consumed.
