Treating severe acid reflux after a gastric bypass

Gastric bypass is one of the most effective ways of helping people who are morbidly obese to reduce their calorie consumption and lose weight. During the surgery, the surgeon cuts off the top of the stomach and seals it off from the rest of the stomach, reducing the amount of food that your stomach can hold. The doctor then cuts a small part of the ileum and attaches it to the stomach, which reduces the amount of food which will be absorbed by the body.
