Sansum Clinic Bariatric Surgery Center Gastric Bypass Surgery
The most popular and most tested is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. This involves making a thumb size pouch out of the stomach and connecting the intestines to the new, smaller stomach. The intestines are reconnected down-stream so that less nutrient absorption occurs.
This operation has been around for more than 30 years and reliably produces major weight loss that can be sustained for decades.
