Mini Gastric Bypass
Mini Gastric Bypass is the easiest, shortest and most economical operation among bariatric surgery operations. Mini Gastric Bypass surgery provides weight loss as much as other bypass surgeries. It can control conditions such as type 2 diabetes, diabetes, hyperlipidemia and hypertension, which are among the symptoms of metabolic syndrome.
The most basic logic in surgery is to reduce the volume of the stomach. However, besides this, it is bypassed in the intestine that provides absorption at the stomach exit. A bypass is made with the connection of the anastomosis between the stomach and the small intestine. With the deactivation of this absorbent intestine, it has a positive effect on rapid weight loss, treatment of blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and advanced age patients.
Mini Gastric Bypass is an operation performed with completely closed methods. The incisions are made under 1 centimeter. Through these incisions, the camera and the tools necessary for the surgery are placed into the abdomen.These tools are specially produced tools that can pass through holes. A small stomach tube is created at the entrance of the stomach to separate it from the rest of the stomach. The actual stomach to be used after the surgery is this stomach piece. In the surgery, no organ is cut and removed. This formed stomach is connected to the small intestine and the food is passed to the intestines. This procedure covers the second part of the surgery.

How to lose weight with Mini Gastric Bypass?
With the Mini Gastric Bypass, it is possible to lose weight in three different ways. These are the roads; reduction of stomach volume, restriction of absorption and hormonal regulation. With the reduction of stomach volume, which is the first way, your food portions will be reduced.In the second way, the restriction of absorption, the 200 cm section at the beginning of the small intestine is separated from the food passage. It is the duty of this separate section to carry bile and other fluids that allow digestion and absorption.
Thanks to this absorption restriction, the amount of your weight loss will be high and the weight loss you have achieved will be maintained for a long time. The third way, hormonal regulation, has the effect of keeping the stomach passive inside. Since the foods eaten cannot pass this part, their effectiveness will be lost without warning. In this way, the secretion of ghrelin, which is the hunger hormone, will decrease.
How are the stomach and small intestine connected?
The connection of the stomach and small intestine is made with special staples called staplers. These staplers, called staplers, are specially produced tools suitable for the closed method. By gluing the stomach and intestines together, a gap is created between them. This created space is called anastomosis.
