What is a Mini Gastric Bypass?

In short, mini gastric bypass (MGB or OAGB) is a type of surgery for weight loss. It is comparable to the Gastric Bypass surgery but has only one connection to the small intestine. And instead of using a small pouch such as the gastric sleeve, this surgery procedure makes use of a tube-like pouch that is able to hold about 1-2 ounces, limiting how much food you can take in at one time. The small intestine is then looped or attached to a new pouch that is located about six to seven feet from its starting point. This placement will bypass the part of the intestines, thus allowing for less calories, nutrients, and fats to be absorbed by the body, resulting in weight loss.

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.
