The mini gastric bypass is an alternative to the traditional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass that more and more patients are considering. It is also growing in popularity in the NHS.

The mini bypass differs to the Roux because there is only one new connection (anastomosis) made to the bowel, rather than the traditional 2.

It’s worth considering because the weight loss results and health benefits are at least as good as those for the Roux. There are pros and cons for both and the main disadvantage is that a proportion of patients will experience acid reflux. For those patients with a history of reflux, the Roux-en-Y bypass remains the better option.

So, why consider mini? In a nutshell:

  • About 70% excess weight loss.
  • No risk of an internal hernia (due to only one anastomosis).
  • Slightly shorter operating time.

Healthier Weight is the only private provider to offer mini bypass in private hospitals. Our surgeons Mr Rishi Singhal and Mr Markos Daskalakis are experts in weight loss surgery who do mini bypass in both their private and NHS practices.

If you would like to arrange a consultation with Mr Singhal or Mr Daskalakis, we will be pleased to arrange this. They are based in Birmingham but don’t despair if you live a long way away as they will be pleased to schedule an initial consultation over the telephone or using video conference.

Please call us on 0800 313 4618 to discuss mini bypass and to arrange your consultation, or use the book consultation form here. We look forward to speaking with you.

We're still here!

Like the rest of our great country we’re keeping calm and carrying on amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. While we have healthy staff available (and probably like a lot of you, working from home) we’re here to talk to you about your weight loss options. 

Procedure bookings

While we can’t promise we can actually perform your procedure within the next several months, there is still opportunity to go through the eligibility and consultation stages. Our surgeons are on-hand to consult with you over the phone or Facetime (if available).

If you’d like to get ahead of the curve and plan a weight loss procedure with us in the future, we can add you to a priority waiting list for when we’re able to book hospital places again.
