Mini Gastric Bypass



Book your appointment on a mobile / WhatsApp: 00962796060064

Mini Gastric Bypass is a simple, easy one-step procedure that helps the patient lose weight by changing how the stomach and intestine handle food.

Mini Gastric Bypass is most suitable for patients with diabetes or metabolic syndrome, and those who regain weight after undergoing the Gastric Sleeve or Gastric Band surgery.

How It Works

Mini Gastric Bypass is performed using a laparoscope. The stomach is stapled and divided into a small upper section (called the pouch) where the food goes, and a larger bottom section.

Afterwards, the small intestine is connected to the pouch (eliminating 180-200 cm), so the food the patient eats travels from the pouch into the small intestine. As a result, the patient eats less and the body absorbs fewer calories.

The patient is discharged after two days of the surgery, and can go back to his/her daily routine within a week.
