Roux-en-Y (Gastric Bypass)
Gastric bypass surgery is when the surgeon makes a small pouch out of the stomach and reconnects it to the small intestine. The stomach remains intact (ie. it is not removed from the body), however there is a small pouch (30-40mls) - the size of an egg, that prevents too much food or fluid being consumed. The new stomach is attached to the middle of the small intestine. This allows some mis-match absorption of foods and restricts the food allowed into the stomach. This leads to greater suppression of hunger and appetite and subsequent weight loss. With less food being absorbed, there is a greater need of vitamin and mineral supplements.

I found it interesting when you said that preventing too much food in your body allows your stomach to be intact. My best friend mentioned to me last night that she is hoping to find a weight loss surgery, and she asked if I have any idea what is the best option to consider. Thanks to this informative article, I'll be sure to tell her that consulting a trusted gastric bypass surgeon can help her with her journey.

It was fascinating to know that bariatric surgery allows a patient to lose weight in six months. That's probably why my friend wants to take this procedure. I should advise her to look for board-certified surgeons specializing in bariatric weight loss surgery.
