Known as the Roux en Y gastric bypass (RYGB), this procedure involves creating a smaller stomach area so that food does not go through the full intestine. Bariatric surgeons tie a small pouch from your upper stomach so that food bypasses the larger intestine and stays in the pouch. The procedure can result in significant weight loss because your smaller-sized stomach fills quickly.

At our Bariatric Surgery Center, gastric bypass surgery is performed using a laparoscope rather than through a larger open incision. This laparoscopic method allows the surgeon to make a series of much smaller incisions.
