Mini gastric bypass

It involves the creation of a small gastric pouch by dividing the stomach. This pouch is then connected to a section of the small intestine further down, which reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold and limits the absorption of calories and nutrients. Mini gastric bypass is similar to traditional gastric bypass, but involves fewer disruptions to the gastrointestinal tract and has a lower complication rate.
