You can reduce excess body weight by at least half with this laparoscopic weight loss surgery, which uses small incisions that minimize pain and recovery time.


Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery is one of the most common and successful combined weight loss procedures in the United States. Our surgeons create a small stomach pouch that is attached to the small intestine, bypassing the lower stomach and reducing calorie and nutrient absorption. Eighty-five percent of patients lose at least half of their excess body weight. Gastric bypass surgery has a low complication rate and is performed laparoscopically, which minimizes pain and recovery time.
