Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure restricts food intake and shortens the digestive track by creating a small gastric pouch from the upper portion of the stomach. The intestine is surgically connected to this pouch, creating a small opening for food to pass through. The remaining larger portion of the stomach and part of the intestines are bypassed. The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure limits the amount of food consumed and reduces the calories and nutrients absorbed from food.
