Mini Gastric Bypass (M.G.B)

Laparoscopic Mini Gastric Bypass is a variant of Roux en y gastric bypass. Here a longer stomach pouch is made and a loop of small intestine is joined to the stomach pouch at a distance of 150 to 200 cm. It is mainly a mal-absorptive procedure. It leads to an excess weight loss of 70 to 80% at the end of 2 years. Patients need to be on nutritional supplements like iron, calcium, proteins and multivitamins for life.
