Gastric bypass surgery is one of the common type of weight-loss surgery. During gastric bypass surgery, your physician makes the top of the stomach is changed into a small gastric pouch to change the way they absorb and digest food. Food is then redirected to an area further down in the digestive system. Because food will now bypass your stomach, your body does not absorb as many calories. During the Gastric bypass surgery, bariatric surgeon cuts across the top of your stomach, sealing it off from the rest of your stomach. The resulting pouch is about the size like walnut and can hold only about an ounce of food. The surgeon then cuts the small intestine and sews part of it directly into the pouch.
