Gastric bypass surgery is designed to make a portion of the stomach nonfunctional and to reroute the small intestine.
Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery is a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive bariatric procedures that involves surgically reconnecting the stomach and upper small intestines in roughly a Y shape. It is the most commonly preferred and performed technique for surgical weight loss and is the least likely to result in nutritional difficulties.
With this procedure, patients feel a very rapid onset of a sense of fullness, followed by a feeling of growing satiety, or indifference to food, shortly after the start of a meal.
