What is the difference between a gastric bypass and a mini bypass?

Just as in the case of an RNY Gastric Bypass operation, the stomach is divided into two parts. The difference between RNY and Gastric Bypass is that the intestine connects to the stomach without dividing. Thus, in the Mini Gastric Bypass operation, one connection is made less in total. If the absorption is reduced, a longer intestinal section is bypassed in the Mini Gastric Bypass operation than in the RNY Gastric Bypass operation. Due to the fact that the remaining stomach fluids and the passage of bile in its continuation are the ends of the reduced stomach, there is a possibility of bile reflux during a Mini Gastric Bypass operation.

In none of the Gastric Bypass surgeries, the stomach is not removed, the stomach is reduced in itself. As a matter of fact, it is extremely advantageous in two operations. In both operations, it reduces the volume of the stomach and provides absorption. Thus, patients lose weight. He is successful at the stage of losing weight in two operations.
