This video outlines operative treatment of a 43 year old female that was found to have a submucosal gastric mass below the gastroesophageal junction on preoperative screening endoscopy for bariatric surgery. Due to its location, her operative management consisted of 1st a wedge excision of the mass with preservation of lesser curve vasculature, followed by Roux-Y gastric bypass over a month afterwards. Pathology for the specimen showed negative margins on a benign tumor.
