  7. 7. NYBariatricSurgeon.com A Brief History of Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery: Weight loss surgery slowly started in the 1950s with the intestinal bypass, the connection of the upper and lower intestine (anastomosis), in order to bypass a large amount of the absorptive circuit. The resulting weight loss was created by the malabsorption of food. In 1963 the Jejuno-colic Shunt was developed by Drs. J. Howard Payne, Lorent T. DeWind and Robert R. Commons to connect the colon to the upper small intestine. In 1965, laboratory research conducted by Dr. Edward E. Mason (b.1920) and Dr. Chikashi Ito at the University of Iowa would lead to the original gastric bypass which improved and lessened the number of complications from the intestinal bypass. For this reason Dr. Edward E. Mason is known as the father of obesity surgery.
