Mini Gastric Bypass

 

Mini gastric bypass is a less invasive alternative to standard gastric bypass;but produces similar results.This procedure is performed laparoscopically, meaning the surgeon works through several small incisions and uses a tiny camera (called a laparoscope) and a television screen to guide special instruments through the incisions.

 

Advantages:

  • MGB is a low risk surgery.
  • It has excellent weight loss and minimal pain.
  • It can be easily reversed or revised.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

 

The stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature. It combines a satisfying gastric restriction with appetite suppression.

 

Advantages:

  • Less chances of complications such as migration, erosion and infection.
  • Great appetite suppression.
  • Lower risk of peptic ulcer.
  • No vitamin or drugs malabsorption.

 

Gastric Bypass
Roux-En-Y

 

Strapling is used to create a small, upper stomach pouch which restricts the amount of food to be consumed. A portion of small bowel is bypassed thus delaying food from mixing with digestive juices to avoid complete calorie absortion.

 

Advantages:

About 96% of associated health conditions like Sleep Apnea, high BP, Type II Diabetes, Depression, Back Pain were improved or resolved.

Ileal Interposition with
BMI-adjusted sleeve
Gastrectomy

 

A long Segment of last part of small bowel (Ileum) is cut & joined very close to the stomach. Undigested food now first enters Illeum to stimulate increased secretion of Incretin (gut) Hormone called GLP-1, which in turn stimulates Beta cells in pancreas to secrete increase amounts in Insulin.

 

Advantages:

  • Operation for control of Type-2 Diabetes
  • even with normal BMI (non obese patient)
