The gastric bypass procedure is the most commonly performed bariatric surgical procedure in the United States. It is widely considered the gold standard in bariatric surgery because it offers patients the greatest potential weight loss of any bariatric procedure currently available. Gastric bypass is incredibly effective because it combines restriction – by creating a smaller stomach pouch – with malabsorption of calories – by rerouting and bypassing part of the small intestine.
