Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery

Robotic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass

This surgical weight-loss procedure reduces the volume of the stomach so that the patient feels full after eating a small amount of food. It also bypasses part of the intestinal tract so that fewer nutrients are absorbed by the body. Gastric bypass surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and usually requires a hospital stay of several days.
