Gastric bypass surgery. Endoscope footage of a gastric bypass operation being performed on a morbidly obese 42 year old woman. Gastric bypass surgery (GBP) reduces the size of the stomach and reconstructs the intestines to reduce the amount of food that can be absorbed by the patient. The restrictive and malabsorptive effects of GBP can result in drastic weight loss for morbidly obese patients.
