Mini Gastric Bypass Surgeon in Delhi – Dr. Sushant Wadhera
Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass also called Omega Loop Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Bypass or Billroth-II Bypass is another form of Gastric Bypass. In this the Gastric pouch is like a long sleeve which is anastomosed (joined) to the intestines, making a loop thereby finishing the procedure with only single anastomosis.
It has a theoretical advantage over RYGB in causing no intestinal obstruction in long term follow up. The results of excess weight loss and resolution of co morbidities is similar to that of RYGB. This procedure is primarily a malabsorptive procedure as compared to the classical RYGB.
The patient has a better capacity and tolerance to quantity of the food but as it causes more malabsorption the frequency of stools is increased. Post MGB, we have seen brilliant results in special subtype of our population.
