Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery
Also known as simpler for of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass operation, it is a form of mini bypass bariatric surgery in which surgeons excise the stomach to create a small pouch, reducing food intake, and bypassing duodenum (first part of small intestine) and some part of jejunum (middle part) of the small intestine to fasten the release of digestive enzymes that reduces hunger.
Small incisions are made in lower abdomen and with help of precision instruments, a three step procedure is followed: –
Stomach is divided into two parts, a proximal pouch (small) and larger remnant pouch
Bypassing first and middle part of small intestine, creating short Intestinal Roux Limb
Attaching the proximal stomach pouch to Intestinal Roux Limb
In this surgery, firstly the quantity of food intake is very small. Then, as the distance between the stomach and colon is reduced, the food does not mix with digestive enzymes till it reaches lower part of the intestine. It results in a substantial reduction in the absorption of calories and nutrients like fat, proteins and fat soluble vitamins.
