What Is Gastric Bypass Surgery?

As a result to the gastric bypass surgery, nutrients are being bypassed(passed over) from the beginning of the stomach to the middle of the small intestine.

Thus, most of the stomach, the duodenum and the first half of the small intestine are no longer in use. These parts remain as a one way dead road zone, open at the bottom end towards the active digestive tract, but closed up to the upper one. Those still have the function just for providing the excreta into the system. Foods pass these parts by without ever entering and after insignificant digestion are being thrown out. This surgical method also provides mechanical and hormonal effects such as reducing appetite and speeding up the feeling of saturation.
