Magenstrasse and Mill Surgery New Haven - Dr. Elmer Valin
A Surgical Solution for Weight Loss
Laparoscopic Magenstrasse and Mill surgery at our New Haven practice can help you start a new chapter of health and happiness in your life. Compared to other weight loss surgery procedures such as VBG and RNY, this technique leaves you with more stomach capacity, but is still proven to help you lose weight by restricting the amount of food you can eat in one sitting. To learn more about how you can benefit from Magenstrasse and Mill surgery, contact our New Haven, Connecticut weight loss practice today to schedule an appointment.
The Magenstrasse and Mill Procedure
Laparoscopic Magenstrasse and Mill is a purely restrictive procedure that, unlike other gastric bypass procedures, is not malabsorptive. This procedure limits the amount of food that a person can eat, eventually resulting in weight loss. The upper part of the stomach is stapled vertically and divided completely from the normal stomach to create a small three- to four-ounce pouch. Your pouch will be the size and shape of a small banana. Food will empty slowly from the partitioned smaller stomach, which will create a feeling of fullness. Digestion occurs naturally. The small intestine is not altered during this surgery. Compared to the gastric sleeve procedure, you will lose less than 80% of your normal stomach. The hospitalization for the Laparoscopic Magenstrasse and Mill procedure is one to two nights. Patients are walking the same day as their surgery. Most patients return back to work in one to two weeks time.
Currently, Dr. Elmer Valin is the only surgeon in the state of Connecticut performing this specialized procedure.
