Gastric bypass surgery, also called Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, is a weight-loss surgery that involves creating a small pouch of stomach and connecting this pouch directly to the small intestine.
Gastric sleeve has become the most performed surgery. It permanently reduces the size of your stomach, which limits how much food you can eat.
We perform revisional weight loss surgery to repair or alter a previous weight loss surgery.
