Gastric bypass is the most commonly performed surgical weight loss procedure. Gastric bypass can also be performed for other conditions, including diabetes.
This procedure is traditionally performed with a single, large incision over the abdomen, allowing surgeons to put their hands inside the patient's abdomen and perform the operation. Laprascopic surgery and robotic-assisted laparascopic surgery are now being used to perform gastric bypass with multiple, small incisions and narrow instruments.
