Mini-Gastric Bypass (OAGB)

What is a Mini Gastric Bypass?

Mini gastric bypass surgery (MGB or OAGB) is a weight loss surgery that can be revised. It is very similar to the traditional Gastric Bypass but only has one connection to the small intestine (instead of 2). Instead of a small pouch like with the gastric sleeve, the mini gastric bypass surgery procedure creates a narrow tube-like pouch that holds approximately 1-2 ounces, restricting the amount of food that can be taken in at one time. The small intestine is then attached or looped to the new pouch approximately six to seven feet from its starting point. This placement bypasses the part of the intestines that allows for less nutrients, calories, and fats to be absorbed by the body, causing weight loss.

Mini Gastric Bypass Benefits
  • Long-lasting weight loss
  • Shorter, less invasive procedure (1-2 hours)
  • Suppresses appetite (feel “full” sooner) which helps keep weight off
  • Higher quality of sleep
  • Increased energy levels
  • Reduces risk for potentially life-threatening weight-related health problems like high cholesterol, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and more

Very similar to the traditional RNY Gastric Bypass, the Mini Gastric Bypass is a simpler procedure that’s done in slightly less time and it has one less connection to the intestines which lowers complication risk.

This is a minimally-invasive, laparoscopic procedure with a very small complication risk (2.9%). The complication risk is slightly less than the traditional RNY Gastric Bypass due to their being less connetions to the intestines.
