What Is a Gastric Bypass?

Gastric Bypass surgery is a surgical procedure, performed under general anesthesia, and takes between (2-4) hours. Whereby the size of the patient’s stomach is reduced, it works on attaching the upper part of the stomach and immediately diverting it to the small intestine, so the food will go only to the upper section of the stomach. Thus, when the patient eats a little amount of food, he will immediately feel full as if his stomach was filled with plenty of food.
