Mini-Gastric Bypass Surgery Description & Pricing
Is Mini-Gastric Bypass Right for You?
Mini-Gastric Bypass Surgery
Mini Gastric Bypass surgery is performed by reducing the size of the stomach and connecting the lower portion of the small intestine directly to the new gastric pouch, limiting the amount of food that can be consumed at one time.
The weight loss and recovery period is very similar to the traditional gastric bypass method, however mini gastric bypass is a simpler procedure as it has less re-routing of the intestinal tract and typically requires less time to complete. As such, a mini gastric bypass may be a suitable option for clients who could benefit from a shorter procedure time.
Like a regular gastric bypass procedure, individuals must strictly adhere to dietary restrictions with a life-time requirement of dietary supplements to prevent malnutrition.
This procedure is considered minimally invasive and is performed laparoscopically.
Procedure Type: Malabsorptive & Restrictive
