Surgical Procedures: Gastric Bypass Surgery
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery
Our practice offers state-of-the-art laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery as an option for our patients. Gastric bypass surgery is an extremely common procedure in which our bariatric surgeon creates a small stomach pouch that is connected to the lower part of the small intestine so that food entering the stomach bypasses the area of the digestive system where much of the calories and fat are absorbed. Because the stomach pouch that is created holds a significantly reduced amount of food, patients eat less during mealtime.
