Gastric Bypass Surgery
A type of bariatric surgery in which a portion of the stomach is cut away to result in a smaller stomach pouch, and in which the small intestine is rerouted in a manner to prevent the body from absorbing calories that contribute to weight gain. Gastric bypass surgery is considered both a restrictive and malabsorptive form of weight-loss surgery.
