What is gastric bypass?
Gastric bypass is a bariatric surgery or obesity surgery procedure with the objective of decreasing food absorption by short circuiting the stomach.
This operation is performed by laparoscopy using small incisions on the skin of less than 2 cm to introduce a camera and operating instruments.
On the other hand, gastric bypass is the reference operation to treat morbid obesity and is a good operation for almost all patients who are candidates for bariatric surgery.
