The mini-gastric bypass treatment is suitable for patients who are in the obese class II (BMI over 35). The reason for surgery is always a prevention or treatment of diseases caused by obesity and, furthermore, an improvement of the quality and life span of an obese patient.
A mini-gastric bypass creates a long narrow tube of the stomach along its right border (the lesser curvature). A loop of the small gut is brought up and hooked to this tube at about 180 cm from the start of the intestine.
A major advantage the mini-gastric bypass has over other types of weight loss surgery is the fact that it can be easily reversed or revised should the need ever arise. Revision surgery is done through the same 5 incisions using the laparoscopic approach, it is performed in about the same amount of time as the original surgery (sometimes less than an hour), and it usually involves only an overnight stay in the hospital.
If you decide to lose weight with a mini-gastric bypass, you need no reference from your practitioner. All the pre-operative examinations are done at the ISCARE clinic.
