Obesity Surgery > The mini-gastric bypass


This procedure is more recent and easier to perform than the classic gastric bypass. It seems to be a good alternative option to the gastric bypss procedure.
To avoid a possible but rare biliary reflux into the gastric pouch (pain and heartburn), this gastric pouch has to be longer and very narrow.

The procedure is performed by laparoscopic approach .
The mean operative time is 1h30 (45min to 2hours).
The mean hospital stay is 36 hours.
The procedure is totally reversible and  performed by laparoscopic approach;




It is still to early to evaluate the long term results of the procedure but our early experience seems to be very encouraging.
