Gastric bypass surgery involves weight-loss by making the stomach smaller. In this surgery, a part of the stomach is stapled to create a small pouch and is connected to the distal small intestine. The upper part of the small intestine is then re-attached in a Y-shaped configuration connecting two parts of the intestine together, bypassing a part of the intestine results in absorption of fewer calories and elimination of hunger hormone (Gherlin). Thus, the amount of food consumed is reduced resulting in weight loss.
