Gastric Bypass Surgery
What is Gastric Bypass Surgery?
The Gastric Bypass Surgery, also called Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass, is a type of weight-loss procedure that combines both a "Restriction" and "Mal-absorption" alteration in digestion. It restricts the amount of food that your stomach holds, limiting the amount of calories and nutrients your body absorbs. Gastric Bypass also changes the gut hormones, which helps you feel full longer and suppresses your appetite.
