Newest weight loss surgery mini bypass information and locations in Mexico

This is a newer form of gastric bypass surgery. Doctors shrink the patient’s stomach using a simpler method and then part of the digestive system is re-routed or bypassed. This is so the patient absorbs fewer calories and nutrients from food.
Surgery requires general anesthesia and it’s usually done with a laparoscopically. Doctors use a simpler technique that divides the stomach into a long narrow pouch where food will go and a larger section. Then the surgeon will connect part of the small intestine to the pouch. Food will now travel from the pouch directly into the intestine.
Depending on the doctor and the needs of the patient, the procedure might be a robotically assisted surgery.
