What is Mini Gastric Bypass ?

Mini gastric bypass, also called One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass, is surgery for morbidly obese. The procedure gives excellent results and the major benefit is that it is less invasive than a classic gastric bypass.

The procedure entails sectioning the stomach in the form of a narrow tube, which is attached to the small intestine, approximately 6 feet from the initial point of the small intestine.

The procedure works in three different ways and these mechanisms of action are:

  • Restricting the capacity of the stomach, i.e the amount of food intake
  • Malabsorption since a large part of the initial small intestine is bypassed, decreasing calorie absorption.
  • Hormonal levels of ghrelin or hunger hormone are reduced thereby reducing the appetite.
Advantages of Mini Gastric Bypass surgery
  • It is a reversible procedure
  • Recovery time is less than standard gastric bypass surgery
  • Better Relief from symptoms associated with obesity after the weight sheds off
  • Lower risk of post-surgery complications.
  • Lower risk of infection because of minimal incisions required
  • Rapid healing of incisions so the patient can resume regular activities shortly after the procedure

Am I a Good Candidate?

The main criteria for undergoing Mini gastric bypass surgery is that you should have a BMI of 40 and above, or 35 and above with the presence of other comorbidities like diabetes, sleep apnea, joint pain, etc. You should have tried a diet and exercise program in the past and failed to have achieved weight loss, there should be no history of other weight-loss surgeries and alcohol abuse and if you are between 18 to 55 years of age, you can undergo mini gastric bypass surgery.

How is Mini Gastric Bypass done?

Step 1

The procedure is performed laparoscopically under general anesthesia. Access is created to the abdominal cavity with small incisions of approximately 1 inch for instrument insertion. The liver is retracted for the procedure. The stomach anatomy is then divided into two portions.

Step 2

The surgeon makes a narrow stomach tube that is connected to the distal end of the small intestine at a distance of 6 feet. The central segment of the intestine is then connected to the opening in the stomach pouch which is known as the “omega loop”. This way, food can bypass the lower stomach, duodenum, and a piece of the small intestine thanks to the loop.

What is the Recovery after Mini Gastric Bypass like?

Recovery is quick with laparoscopic procedures. You will need to stay for 2-3 nights at the hospital and another week to ten days in town for recovery after your mini gastric bypass surgery in India. Follow-up visits are done to make sure you have an uncomplicated recovery. After surgery proper diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes have to be made to achieve the desired weight loss and to sustain the results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Statistics have suggested that mini-gastric bypass is quite an effective procedure. The short-term weight loss after an MGB is approximately 70 – 80% of the excess body weight. In most of these cases, at least 60 % or even more of weight loss is sustained over the long term. The maintenance of weight also greatly depends on patient compliance and other factors.

A mini bypass functions in a manner similar to a complete gastric bypass however the major difference between the two is that the mini bypass involves less intestinal rerouting and a shorter overall surgery time. Also, mini gastric bypass involves only a single anastomosis whereas full gastric bypass has 2 anastomoses.

Both Mini Gastric Bypass and sleeve gastrectomy are effective procedures, however, they have slightly different indications. The Gastric Sleeve procedure is much less invasive than the complete Gastric Bypass and Mini Bypass procedures. If the patient has to lose 100 pounds or less, gastric sleeve surgery is the best option, but if they need to drop between 100 and 150 pounds, the Mini Gastric Bypass is a better preferable surgical alternative.

The essential qualifier for undergoing Mini gastric bypass surgery is that you have a BMI of 40 or above; or 35 or higher with concomitant comorbidities such as diabetes, sleep apnea, joint pain, and so on.

Though you can enjoy most of the food items after mini bypass with portion control, it is however advisable that you adopt an active and healthy lifestyle and make some dietary changes preferring healthier food items. It is best to avoid/ limit the intake of carbonated drinks, sugary and high fat foods, alcohol and tough meats.

Though Mini Gastric Bypass is still a newer procedure as compared to Roux-en-Y and gastric sleeve, recent studies and statistics have shown that the procedure is equally effective, if not more than the other weight loss surgeries in terms of weight loss and Diabetes remission.

Studies have established that there is similar weight reduction and health improvement after Mini Gastric bypass surgery as compared to the more routinely performed Roux-en-Y Gastric bypass surgery, with the added advantage of decreased risk of complications and fewer and milder side effects. Mini Gastric bypass is also reversible, unlike gastric bypass, and it is definitely less expensive.
