MINI GASTRIC BYPASS

Mini Gastric Bypass reduces the size of your stomach, by creating a sleeve like pouch that restricts the amount you can eat and decreases appetite by altering the hormonal signals for hunger. A portion of the small intestine is then bypassed and connected to the pouch.

This results in fewer calories being absorbed and triggering hormonal mechanisms that combat diabetes and high blood pressure.
