Colon/Intestine Operation

Good Morning, I've heard about an operation on the large intestine to help with weight reduction. Apparently they remove some of the intestine.
I would like to know more about this procedure, as well as the pros & cons.
Could you also please tell me what the "medical term" for this operation is? What is it called?
Regards & Thank you
Veronique

Veriquick, I think you’re referring to a small bowel resection – removal of part of the small intestine. Let me know as a new question and we’ll take it from there. Good luck.
