Gastric Bypass

 

Gastric Bypass: Surgeons from the Center for Surgical Weight Loss & Wellness at Atlantic City Medical Center perform a minimally invasive Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery to treat morbid obesity. Medical Director Alexander Onopchenko, MD, FACS, demonstrates the procedure which divides the stomach into a small upper portion from the larger lower portion, so that only the small upper portion, which is reduced to be about the size of a medium-sized egg, receives the food.
