Mini Gastric Bypass Sugery
The minigastric bypass or one anastomosis bypass is a highly effective weight loss procedure.
The majority of weight loss is caused by the restriction of food and calorie intake, however a small component of the procedure is directed at limiting calorie absorption due to the small intestine bypass.
Minimally invasive approach (Laparoscopic) makes it a simpler procedure and less operative time than the gastric bypass.
Lower risk of leakage or intestinal obstruction as compared to gastric bypass.
Creates a small stomach pouch that fills just a small amount of food. The small intestine bypass limits the calorie absorption.
Excellent short and long term results. Very effective alternative for sweet eaters.
