A mini gastric bypass - what is it?

Mini gastric bypass, also called omega loop bypass, uses staples to create a new small stomach, just like gastric bypass, but with a different shape and only one connection to the small intestine. Again, food goes directly into the intestines, and you will feel full quickly.

The mini-gastric bypass was first used in the late 1960s, but was later discarded. Developments in laparoscopic (“keyhole”) surgery have made the small gastric bypass very popular again. When gastric bypass is used in Turkey, it is a fast, effective and inexpensive alternative to conventional gastric bypass in this country. Mini bypass surgery is a relatively quick and simple operation, preferably performed by specialists and surgeons in Turkey.

The mini stomach formed by this procedure can absorb much less food, so you feel full faster. The body absorbs fewer calories because there is no more food in the duodenum. The surgery causes hormone levels to regulate your appetite and suppress your hunger.

What is the procedure for gastric bypass?

In a gastric bypass, the surgeon first creates a small gastric pouch through which food then flows. To do this, he seals part of your stomach, which can hold about 15 ml, with staples. The rest of the stomach remains, so it is not removed as in a gastric bypass, but it no longer plays a role in your digestion. The surgeon then makes a new connection between the wall of your small stomach and your small intestine. In this way, he provides a bypass for your food. Instead of having to go through the rest of your stomach and duodenum, it goes directly from the stomach wall into your small intestine. So, after bypassing, your body can’t fully digest your food and absorbs fewer calories.

How is this different from a mini-bypass?

A mini-bypass works about the same as a regular bypass. The surgeon closes off part of your stomach with staples, leaving a small pocket. He then connects this pocket to your small intestine. The difference from an “ordinary” gastric bypass is how the small stomach is connected to the small intestine. In an omega-loop gastric bypass, another name for mini-bypass, the surgeon makes only one connection between the stomach and the small intestine. In a regular bypass, there are two.

In addition, the surgeon bypasses a large part of the small intestine. This makes digestion shorter than in a regular gastric bypass, so the body absorbs even fewer nutrients. These are mainly fats.

What is the procedure of gastric bypass surgery?

In the first part of the operation, the surgeon divides the stomach into two parts using an endoscopic device. This creates a new, narrower stomach pouch. Because the new stomach is much smaller, it can hold much less food. Most of the stomach remains in the body and continues to produce digestive juices that aid in digestion. This separated part of the remaining stomach will no longer be in contact with ones food.

In the next step of the mini-gastric bypass surgery, the surgeon takes a duodenal loop and part of the jejunum (middle small intestine) into the stomach and creates a connection with the lower part. Bypassing a total of two meters of small intestinal tissue, the food from the gastric pouch passes directly into the small intestinal remnant, where it comes into contact with the digestive juices from the separated portion of the stomach. Bypassing the duodenum and jejunum reduces food intake and caloric intake. Fewer calories mean weight loss.

Patients who have a mini gastric bypass surgery in Antalya or Turkey can often assume that they will recover from this operation within 24 hours. However, for safety reasons, it is best to stay in the hospital for three to five days. Experienced nurses and doctors encourage patients to get up and move around as soon as possible to prevent blood clots from forming.
