What is Omega Loop Bypass?

Posted On 08/10/19

An Omega-Loop Gastric Bypass also known as a Mini-Bypass is a procedure that aims to reduce the amount of food you eat, as well as reduce the number of calories that are absorbed from the food you eat.
In this method the stomach is divided into two sections, creating a smaller stomach pouch, then, the first part of the small intestine is bypassed, reducing the amount that can be absorbed. Mini-Bypass works both by restricting the amount of food that can be eaten at any one time, due to the smaller stomach pouch and by altering gut hormones involved in appetite control.

Why an Omega Loop Bypass?

An Omega-Loop Gastric Bypass is a quick and effective alternative to standard gastric bypass. This is a widely recognized procedure for the eradication of diabetes in insulin and non-insulin dependent patients and for showing immediate improvement of their diabetes, some coming off insulin within a few days post-surgery.
When obesity endangers your health, Omega Loop Bypass is the remedy that will help to restrict how much you eat and control hunger; it will not change what you eat and by itself, is not a cure for obesity. It is important to have a significant weight loss, which can only be achieved through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. This can ensure both an adequate nutritional status and long-term weight loss success.

How It Is Performed?

Omega-Loop Gastric Bypass operation may be performed by  laparoscopically, under general anesthesia. The surgery takes 3 to 4 small incisions through which a camera and small instruments are introduced.
The first step is to staple the stomach to create a pouch, separate from the rest of your stomach. With a single anastomosis gastric bypass, the pouch is connected after the duodenum without dividing the intestine. After completing the procedure, your incisions are closed.
A single anastomosis gastric bypass just like any other gastric surgery may be associated with risks such as infection, bile reflux, and nutritional deficiency.
