MINI GASTRIC BYPASS PROCEDURE

The Mini Gastric Bypass is a modernized version of the traditional Gastric Bypass (Roux-en-Y) procedure. It is performed laparoscopically.

The stomach is divided into a smaller portion, or pouch that is approximately 1/4 of the existing stomach. The gastric pouch is then joined to the small intestine.

This results in the majority of the stomach and approximately 1/3 of the small intestine being ‘bypassed’ when you eat food. This means it is not involved in the digestion or absorption of the food you eat.

YOU FEEL FULLER on smaller amounts of food and the absorption of the food you eat is reduced.
