  • Mini Gastric Bypass

    • Gastric bypass surgery refers to a surgical procedure in which the stomach is divided into a small upper pouch and a much larger lower "remnant" pouch and then the small intestine is rearranged to connect to both.
    • 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 approximate 6 feet of intestines.
    • Mini-gastric bypass are both mal absorptive and restrictive procedures.
