Next , the small intestine is divided and re-connected to itself at a lower portion.

is passed beyond the stomach remnant and connected to the small gastric pouch.
This new arrangement of your intestinal tract allows food to bypass major areas of your digestive system, thus the term "Gastric Bypass".
