A #lowerendoscopy is very similar to an upper endoscopy, only this procedure examines the lower part of the digestive tract, or the lower intestine.

Gastric bypass and other bariatric surgery procedures are very complex and candidacy must ultimately be decided on a case-by-case basis.

The gastric sleeve procedure involves the removal of a large portion of the stomach, leaving only a thin, sleeve-shaped segment. Because the stomach is reduced in size, the patient can only eat a small amount of food at a time, much as with LAP-BAND® System surgery. This type of obesity surgery is known as a restrictive procedure, because it relies on the patient's inability to hold a large amount of food in the stomach to decrease weight. Gastric bypass, in contrast, is known as a malabsorptive procedure because, in addition to the reduction of the stomach, a portion of the small intestine is bypassed, thereby reducing the body's ability to absorb calories that are eaten.
