What Is Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery In Punjab ?

Mini gastric bypass surgery is a type of weight loss surgery which has replaced most of the known and gold standard bariatric procedures like Roux en Y Gastric Bypass. Mini gastric bypass has become one of the most preferred weight loss procedures in Punjab . In this procedure, a long pouch along the lesser curvature of the stomach is created before the Pylorus and approx. 2 meters of small intestine is bypassed and anastomosed to the newly created gastric pouch.

This arrangement causes food to pass directly into the intestine and the gastric juices, bile and pancreatic juice mix with the food in the common channel which is 2 meters away.
