Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Be Medical Bariatric

A Short And Relatively Simple Procedure.

This procedure has been shown by the available research to have low risk and result in good short and long-term weight loss.

This surgery was developed to reduce operating time, simplify the procedure and reduce complications. Recent studies show that it does reduce operating time, may lead to similar weight loss (some studies show that mini-gastric bypass may actually produce more weight loss), and reduce overall complication rates compared to gastric bypass surgery

What exactly is Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery?

The mini-gastric bypass procedure is restrictive and malabsorptive. This means that the procedure reduces the size of your stomach, restricting the amount you can eat. The procedure also reduces absorption of food by bypassing up to 6 feet of intestines. Gastric bypass and the mini-gastric bypass are both malabsorptive and restrictive procedures. Gastric sleeve and the Lap Band are restrictive procedures.

How do I know if I am Candidate?

Candidates who may want to opt for this form of bypass surgery are typically morbidly obese and have a significant amount of body weight to lose.

What Are The Benefits Of This Surgery Compared To Gastric Bypass Surgery?

  • Shorter operating time.
  • Less re-routing of the intestines.
  • One fewer anastomosis (connection of intestines), which in theory means less chance of a complication.
  • Technically easier for the surgeon.
  • Similar weight loss and recovery.

What tests or formats should I perform before the surgery?

The first step is to fill out our medical questionnaire, our coordinator will contact you as soon as possible to talk about your case and if it is necessary to perform a test to make the evaluation correctly. If you are not a candidate for this surgery, our doctors will make the most appropriate recommendations to take care of your health and well-being.

You must also be able to handle the physical stress of surgery. Some people have health complications that make major surgery very risky. In some cases, these complications stem from obesity itself, and some initial weight loss can improve the health of the patient enough for surgery.

Psychological readiness is another important factor. Gastric sleeve entails a series of dramatic lifestyle changes, which can be stressful or cause unexpected reactions. Having the right attitude toward food, exercise, and health is important.

If a test is necessary, the doctor will let you know in the medical evaluation, as well as the diet that should follow.
