What is Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery?
This surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, performed using a laparoscope through tiny incisions in the abdomen. Staples are used to create a small pouch that restricts food intake. The small intestine is re-routed from the stomach to change the way the body absorbs and processes food.
