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.
WHY CONSIDER THE MINI GASTRIC BYPASS?
Technically simple and safe procedure
Typically takes less than 1 hour to perform
Hospital stay IS usually only overnight
Fully reversible and revisable procedure
Good long term weight loss
High resolution of Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Sleep Apnea
