Gastric Bypass

What is a Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass is a type of malabsorptive bariatric surgery. A small stomach pouch is created at the upper end of the stomach, and then the surgeon creates a bypass for food. The bypass allows food to skip the large excluded stomach and the first part of the small intestine limiting the absorption of calories. Weight Loss is achieved by absorbing less of the food. Gastric Bypass is often used as a method to treat morbid obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, other comorbidities or a previous failed weight loss surgery.
