Gastric Bypass Surgery
Considered the Gold Standard for weight-loss surgery, laparoscopic gastric bypass (or Roux-en-Y) is a well-studied effective treatment for morbid obesity. While there are new surgical procedures for weight loss, none have the long-term data to verify results and safety that bypass does.
During the procedure, the stomach is made smaller (similar to gastric sleeve), but part of the small intestine is closed off so that food bypasses it. A new stomach pouch is created by making a small or large incision in the abdomen.
