Mini or Omega Loop Gastric Bypass
This is another form of stomach bypass surgery. It is very similar to Roux-en-Y, but in this case, a loop of bowel is joined to the small pocket of stomach that has been created. This is a newer and more advanced procedure than Roux-en-Y. It is more efficient to perform and has good outcomes for weight loss.
This surgery is not suitable for all patients, and Dr Ma will examine you thoroughly to determine whether it is appropriate for your condition.
Body Mass Index (BMI): A Quick Calculator
If your BMI is 30 – 39.9, you are considered to be obese; 40 – 49.9 is morbidly obese, and 50+ is super obese. BMI can be useful in helping you understand whether you are in a healthy weight range. But it’s only part of the equation. Your initial consultation with Dr Ma includes a thorough medical examination, full medical history and questions about your current lifestyle and weight management history.
