In a roux-en-y Gastric Bypass, a small pouch about the size of an egg is created at the top of the stomach using surgical staples. This pouch effectively acts as your “new” stomach. 

The smaller stomach is connected directly to the middle portion of the small intestine, bypassing the rest of the stomach and the upper portion of the small intestine. No stomach or intestine is removed during surgery. The new connection between your stomach pouch and intestine restricts intake and changes the way food is digested. The new, smaller stomach pouch allows you to feel full with much smaller meals.
