Mini Gastric bypass Surgery

Mini Gastric bypass Surgery in Tijuana, Mexico.

Mini gastric bypass surgery, also known as single anastomosis gastric bypass or one-anastomosis gastric bypass, is a weight loss surgery that combines restrictive and malabsorptive techniques to help individuals achieve significant weight loss. It is a variation of the traditional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedure but involves fewer surgical steps and a simplified intestinal rearrangement.

You can loss up to 70 Percent of Excess Weight with Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery

Dr. Hidalgo recommends the mini gastric bypass for certain patients who want or need more weight loss than a gastric sleeve can provide yet do not require a full gastric bypass for their weight loss results. Some patients are much better off considering having the RNY Gastric Bypass surgery if they have to lose 150 pounds or more, however, if you need to lose 100 pounds, the mini gastric bypass may just be for you.

Mini Gastric bypass Surgery

An overview of the mini gastric bypass surgery procedure:

Anesthesia: The surgery begins with administering general anesthesia to ensure the patient is comfortably asleep and doesn’t experience any pain or discomfort during the procedure.

Creation of a Small Pouch: The surgeon starts by creating a small pouch at the top of the stomach using surgical staples or a gastric band. This pouch will serve as the new, smaller stomach.

Division of the Intestine: The surgeon then divides the small intestine and brings up one end of it to connect directly to the small stomach pouch. This creates a “Y” shape, allowing food to bypass a portion of the small intestine.

Reattachment of the Intestine: The divided end of the small intestine is reattached lower down on the intestine, creating a bypassed segment. This bypassed segment reduces the amount of nutrients and calories absorbed by the body, leading to weight loss.

Completion: Once the intestinal rearrangement is completed, the surgeon ensures all connections are secure and functioning properly. The incisions are then closed with sutures or surgical staples.

*Notice the results may vary for each patient depending on many factors related to race, age, health, gender, and whether or not the patient follows the doctor’s post-operative instructions.

Advantages & benefits of Mini Gastric bypass Surgery

As the name suggests, mini gastric bypass surgery makes people think it is a simplified form of Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (RNY) unfortunately that is not the case, in reality, it is a combination of a gastric sleeve and a bypass with the main benefit being that there is only one connection with the intestine instead of multiple connections that you have with the RNY. 

Even though MGBP sounds like an obvious choice between the two procedures, there are a few significant reasons why this might not always be the case.

Mini gastric bypass usually bypasses much less of the intestine than a standard gastric bypass which could lead to slower and less significant weight loss or even possible weight regain.

Unlike gastric bypass surgery, digestive enzymes and bile are not diverted away from the stomach after mini gastric bypass. This can lead to bile reflux gastritis which can cause pain that is difficult to treat. Bile reflux gastritis may also increase the risk of cancer in the stomach pouch.

Because of the reasons above, experienced surgeons typically offer the mini gastric bypass when the patient has more weight than can be lost with the gastric sleeve and yet does not have enough weight to lose where the patient would require an actual gastric bypass.
