What is Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)?
RY Gastric Bypass; It is defined as a type of surgical operation in the form of a new connection between the stomach and the small intestine, as well as the reduction of the stomach. These operations are generally bariatric surgery applications and are effective in the permanent treatment of obesity. These applications, which are mostly performed laparoscopically, are performed by field specialist surgeons in a fully equipped operating room environment.
It is divided into two main sections, one of which is quite small, using special surgical materials (Laparoscopic). The system is arranged by reuniting the small stomach section to be formed to an area approximately 50-70 cm long from the initial part of the small intestine, and reuniting the two intestines that will allow your bile and pancreatic secretions to reach the 100-150 cm area that continues after this level.
With this surgery, it is aimed to reduce the volume of food taken due to the small stomach pouch (30-50 cc) newly created by surgery. Consequently, the late encounter of the small amount of food eaten with pancreatic and bile fluids, it provides weight control by preventing the intake of all the calories it contains.
Unlike sleeve gastrectomy, RY Gastric Bypass both reduces food intake and prevents the intake of all calories in the food taken. Of course, which of these applications will be performed will not be decided according to possible common complications, but according to the analysis to be made by the physician.

What is Mini Gastric Bypass?
Mini Gastric Bypass is a surgery is performed with a laparoscopic technique and this allows both the reduction of the stomach volume and the separation of a part of the small intestines from the absorption function. This shows that Mini Gastric Bypass surgery is a method that can be performed more easily. Mini Gastric Bypass is one of the most quick and easy method among the surgeries performed in bariatric surgery, and the post-operative recovery process is very comfortable and short.
With the laparoscopic method (closed), Mini Gastric Gastric Bypass surgery is performed through 4 holes of 0.5 cm and 1 cm opened on the abdominal wall. During this surgery, a small stomach pocket/pouch of 15 cm length and 2 cm width is created in the stomach with the help of staples, and this tiny stomach pouch is connected between 180-200 cm of the small intestine.
Thanks to this surgery, the stomach volume is reduced to 50 cc thanks to the mini pocket/pouch created from 1000cc. Thus, patients feel “early fullness” even with 50cc of food intake, and then food is prevented from entering the first 150-180 cm of the small intestines, where food absorption is highest, and the passage of food between 180-200 cm of the intestines is ensured. In other words, after the Mini Gastric Bypass surgery, the absorption of sugar and sugary foods taken orally from the intestine is prevented or by reducing the Diabetes can be eliminated.
