This is an spine surgeon New Jersey operation that reduces the size of the stomach and bypasses a large part of the small intestine. In lay terms it`s like a hybrid of the biliopancreatic/intestinal bypass and a gastric stapling procedure. The hope here is to provide a patient the advantages of other procedures and at the same time to eliminate the side effects of the same procedures. It appears to provide reasonable weight loss and to some extent lessen though not eliminate the metabolic side effects of bypassing the intestine. This is not a procedure that has been done for nearly as long as the gastric bypass operation. I would also recommend against this operation to my patients at this time.
