One of the most popular baratric surgery procedures, gastric bypass is proven for long-term weight loss. Performed since the 1960s, the treatment has been improved and refined over time. Surgeons currently use the "Roux-en-Y" gastric bypass technique, which involves stapling the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch the size of a golf ball.
The doctor then attaches a portion of the small intestine to the pouch to bypass a large portion of the stomach and the upper segment of the small intestine, allowing patients to feel full after a small amount of food and absorb fewer calories. Rerouting the digestive tract allows for significant weight loss in patients, as long as they follow their recommended postop diets and exercise routines.
