Gastric Bypass Surgery (Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass)

Gastric bypass surgery, also known as a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is weight loss surgery that alters the way an individual's stomach and small intestine work. The surgery makes the stomach smaller and an individual feels full despite eating less food. Diet and exercise are necessary after surgery to keep the weight from returning.
