The roux-en-y bypass surgery is sometimes done for patients that have obesity and recalcitrant GERD. I agree with Bill, do verify with your surgeon which procedure he is going to do and don't sign any consent forms until you are sure you understand the surgical procedure.
Good luck and welcome to HealingWell.
