Gastric Bypass Weight Loss Surgery
Gastric bypass surgery is the most widely performed weight loss surgery. This procedure involves bypassing part of the digestive system and rerouting part of the small intestine to connect to a new smaller stomach pouch. This procedure helps you lose weight by limiting the amount of food your stomach can hold and reducing how much food is digested.
Gastric bypass typically requires a two-day stay at North Kansas City Hospital.
