Mini Gastric Bypass

Mini Gastric Bypass surgery includes a partition of the stomach with a laparoscopic stapler. Most of the stomach is no longer attached to the esophagus and will no longer receive that food. The artificial new stomach is much smaller and has a structure like a small tube. Approx 150 to 200 cm of intestines are bypassed with the help of surgery. We will attach the remainder of the intestines to the new stomach. Food now flows into your small tube-like stomach and then bypasses between 150 to 200 cm of intestines where it resumes the normal digestive process in your remaining intestine.In addition to its great results on weight loss, the mini-gastric bypass is an excellent procedure for type 2 diabetes, even in the non-obese patients, with high remission rates.

Advantages

  • Mini Gastric bypass surgery can help you lose about 5 to 10 kilograms a month in the first year following surgery. You will gradually lose more weight by eating a healthy diet and participating in regular exercise.
  • The surgery also helps you resolve obesity-related health conditions more aggressively.
  • Unlike the RYGB, it is easily possible to fully reverse the procedure due to the simplicity of the primary procedure.

Disadvantages:

  • As the malabsorptive segment is more than the regular bypass, more nutritional deficiencies are encountered, which needs to be addressed seriously.
  • Lifelong follow up with a physician is required for blood tests to ensure proper health and nutrition.
