Mini Gastric By-Pass

Mini Gastric By-Pass, developed as an alternative to gastric bypass surgery, is a combined operation procedure that both reduces the volume of the stomach and reduces absorption. The duration of mini gastric by-pass surgery, whose effectiveness is similar to the classical by-pass surgery, is shorter. Also, there are fewer complications in this type of operation, which is performed more easily. Mini gastric bypass, which restricts food intake, is a type of operation that helps to disrupt absorption.

Mini gastric by-pass, which is among the obesity surgeries, stands out with its characteristics of being the easiest, shortest, shortest hospital stay and economical. It is also a type of surgery with a high therapeutic role in diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia, which are among the additional findings related to metabolic syndrome.

Who Can Have Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery?

The suitability of patients is of utmost importance for mini gastric bypass operations, which are easier and shorter compared to conventional gastric bypass operations. Patients eligible for the operation usually have the same characteristics as those eligible for conventional gastric bypass.

People who can undergo mini gastric bypass surgery include the following:

In addition, some patients who are deemed appropriate by specialist physicians for special reasons may also undergo mini gastric bypass surgery. People who have different health problems due to their excess weight can be operated on if deemed appropriate with the opinions of specialist physicians and complete examinations.

What are the Advantages of Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery?

It is possible to list many factors among the advantages of Mini Gastric Bypass surgery. What stands out among these is that the operation is a safer and easier procedure compared to conventional gastric bypass surgery. Mini gastric bypass surgery, which has a reversible feature, has fewer risks and its effect on weight loss is quite high.

Since the surgery is performed with the laporoscopic method, patients can safely complete the operation without fear of surgery.  Thanks to the advantages of closed surgery, long-term problems are not encountered. Simple risks and complications that may arise can be resolved in a short time.

Is Mini Gastric Bypass an Effective Method for Weight Loss?

The weight loss achieved with Mini Gastric Bypass surgery occurs as a result of three different effects.

First, because the stomach volume is reduced, people can eat less and feel full more quickly. This reduces the daily calorie intake.

Secondly, because a connection is created between the last part of the small intestine and the stomach, less food is digested and fewer calories are absorbed in the body.

Thirdly, hormonal changes occur with this surgery and these changes support weight loss.

Differences Between Classic Gastric Bypass and Mini Gastric Bypass

Classical gastric bypass and mini gastric bypass are two different methods among obesity surgery treatments. After the procedure, the stomach is reduced in size and the small intestine is modified. However, there are some differences between these two methods.

Both methods have their own advantages and disadvantages. Which method to apply is determined by the patient’s condition, body mass index and type of obesity. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary to consult a specialist before choosing a bariatric surgery method.
