Gastric Bypass

Gastric Bypass at Rivers Hospital

What is a gastric bypass?

Gastric bypass is a restrictive and malabsorptive weight loss surgery procedure. It restricts the amount of food you can eat and reduces the number of calories (and nutrients) you absorb from food.

There are a number of variations of bypass surgery. The most popular in the UK is called the Roux-en-Y bypass (RYGB). The Roux-en-Y bypass reduces your stomach size and shortens your digestive system.
