An Overview of Gastric Bypass Surgery
- In this surgery, the stomach size is reduced by diving it into two parts using surgical staples.
- The small upper part is where the food eaten will go.
- This pouch has the capacity to hold only 1 ounce of food.
- The surgery also involves creating a bypass.
- This is done by connecting a part of the small intestine to a hole made in the new stomach pouch.
- As a result, a large section of the small intestine is bypassed.
- This also results in absorption of fewer calories.
- The procedure is alternatively known as Roux-en-Y, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, RNY, and GBP.
