The Omega (Mini) Bypass
The Omega (Mini) Bypass is the effective alternative to standard gastric bypass surgery for many patients. The Omega (Mini) Bypass is very similar to the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure. The mini gastric bypass in Turkey helps with weight loss by limiting the amount of food that can be eaten and changing the intestinal fungi involved in appetite control.
The minibypass was first used in the late 1960s, but was later discarded. The laparoscopic (“keyhole”) surgery has made lots of developments and improvements over the past years. This lead into the small gastric bypass being again very popular. If the gastric bypass is placed in Turkey, then it is a fast, effective and economical alternative to the conventional gastric bypass in this country.
Mini Gastric Bypass Turkey Surgery
The mini-gastro-bypass operation is a relatively quick and simple operation, ideally performed by specialists and surgeons in Turkey. In the first part of the operation, the surgeon divides the stomach into two parts using an endoscopic device. A new, narrower stomach bag is formed from this. Since the new stomach is much smaller, it can take in considerably less food.
Most of your stomach stays in your body and continues to produce digestive juices that help digestion. However, this separated part of the stomach no longer comes into contact with food.
In the next step of the omega bypass operation, the surgeon creates an intestinal loop consisting of the duodenum and a part of the jejunum to the stomach and connects it to the lower part. Bypassing two meters of the small intestine, the food from the stomach bag goes directly into the small intestine, where it meets the digestive juices from the separated part of the stomach.
By bypassing the duodenum and jejunum, food and calorie intake is reduced. Fewer calories consumed mean weight loss.
