Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery in Tijuana
The mini gastric bypass procedure divides the stomach into two pouches, an upper pouch and lower pouch. The lower portion of the small intestine is connected to the smaller upper pouch. The new smaller stomach pouch assists in getting fuller quicker and helps one to feel fuller longer allowing one to lose weight quicker.
Surgically resecting the small, upper pouch to the lower portion of one's bowels, results in the food not being completely broken down, absorbed, or processed within one's system before exiting the body.
Because this is a laparoscopic procedure, and no large incision is needed to perform mini gastric bypass surgery, there is a lower risk of large surgical scars or a hernia. This procedure has a shorter operating time, and fewer post-op complications reported.

What Happens During Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery
Before this surgery, general anesthesia is received allowing the patient to stay asleep and allowing the patient to remain pain-free. Insertion of a breathing tube (endotracheal tube) into the windpipe allows for breathing during the operation.
CO2 has filled the abdominal cavity allowing the surgeon to have room to perform the procedure comfortably. Bariatric surgical trocars are placed within the belly. A trocar is a specialized tool will a hollow tube for surgeons to accurately perform surgery using special surgical equipment, including a laparoscopic video camera and other laparoscopic instruments. These five trocars are utilized by the surgeon to create a stomach pouch, which is sealed by an endoscopic cutter/stapler.
The bypassed section of the small intestines connects to the new stomach. This connection point is called an “anastomosis.” The anastomosis is placed with sutures.
