Mini Gastric Bypass
Obesity can make you feel self-conscious and prevent you from participating in an active lifestyle.
Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery can improve your vitality and boost your self-confidence.
A mini gastric bypass is a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure that changes how much you can eat and how you absorb calories.
The mini gastric bypass or gastric bypass of an anastomosis, consists of creating a new stomach with a capacity of 40oz approx and makes a connection (anastomosis), with the small intestine, creating a new feeding circuit. Because a mini gastric bypass restricts how much you can eat and how you process your food, it is a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure. Meanwhile, other procedures like gastric sleeve surgery simply resize the stomach to help you feel full faster.
Mini Gastric Bypass also is highly recommended for patients with: Diabetes Mellitus, High Cholesterol level, Fatty Liver disease and Acid Reflux Disease. With gastric bypass surgery there is a 65% remission of Diabetes mellitus and 100% adequate control of it in the long term.
Do you know the benefits of Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery
Long-Lasting Weight Loss
Surgery reduces the size of your stomach by approximately 90 percent and the length of your intestines by up to seven feet. This dramatically limits how much you can eat and means your body will absorb fewer calories.
Shorter & Safer
While a traditional gastric bypass takes about four hours, a mini gastric bypass can be completed in about one hour. It also has a lower risk of complications–just 2.9 percent compared to 7 percent for traditional bypasses.
Improve or Eliminate Health Issues
The procedure can lower your insulin dependency and reverse type 2 diabetes for some patients. Additionally, it can improve obesity-related diseases, such as high cholesterol, hypertension, and other metabolic issues.
Laparoscopic Mini gastric bypass surgery is easier, safer and takes less time to perform than traditional laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. As its name suggests, the mini procedure is a simplified, less complicated form of the traditional weight loss method.
