Lap Mini Gastric Bypass

Lap Mini Gastric Bypass

Lap mini gastric bypass(MGB) is a modification of the regular Roux-en-y gastric bypass(RYGB) procedure. As compared to RYGB, MGB involves creation of bigger pouch and single anastomosis of loop of jejunum with the pouch. It is technically easier as compared to RYGB and gives equivalent results. 

Who are the Candidates For Lap Mini Gastric Bypass:

BMI more than 45, Diabetics are the suitable candidates for MGB though we prefer it in More than 50 BMI peoples.

The advantages of the mini gastric bypass over traditional gastric bypass surgery include:

  • lesser operative time(1.5-2 Hours)
  • Technically easy
  • Lesser risks of complications
  • Similar or more weight loss
  • There may be an increased risk of acid/alkaline reflux following this procedure, but other than that the risks are lesser when compared to traditional gastric bypass surgery. Overall, the benefits of the procedure far outweigh the risks.
  • Like RYGB, MGB patients will require life long supplementation of multivitamins, calcium and iron tablets.
