MINI GASTRIC BYPASS SURGERY
The Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) procedure is a short, simple and successful technique in weight loss surgery. The operation generally takes less than an hour and the hospital stay is 48 hours. With excellent long-term weight loss, minimal pain and the option for reversal or revision should the need ever occur, it’s not surprising that people from all across Canada and the US are choosing the mini gastric bypass as their laparoscopic gastric bypass procedure over other types of weight loss surgery.

Among the various weight loss surgeries, the mini gastric bypass surgery (MGB) is a laparoscopic, minimally invasive, simple, short very successful bariatric surgery. The Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) has excellent long-term weight loss results and is considered a lower risk surgery. This is a procedure which can be easily reversed or revised.
The Mini Gastric Bypass or MGB creates instead of a pouch, a long narrow tube that is then attached to the small intestine at about six feet from its starting point. This bypasses the most highly absorptive section of the intestine. There are no large incisions needed and this procedure is performed laparoscopically, lowering the risk or large surgical scars or hernias post op.
Mini gastric bypass surgery in Cancun, Tijuana, Mexico takes not more than 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. As the procedure is done by the laparoscopic method, the recovery period is shortened. Patients can begin walking within two to three hours after the operation and will be discharged from the hospital within 48 hours
In the first part of mini gastric bypass surgery, the stomach is divided and a small tube of stomach created which becomes the pouch. This is the restrictive part of the procedure and means that only a very small amount of food can be taken at any one time.
Next, the surgeon brings up a loop of bowel (about 200cm long) and joins this to the lower part of the stomach pouch. (The joining of bowel to bowel, or stomach to bowel is called an “anastamosis”). This means that food passes from the small pouch into the small bowel where it meets the digestive juices which have moved downwards from the main part of the stomach. In effect, therefore, about 2m of small bowel has been bypassed before absorption of food (and calories) can take place. Fewer calories absorbed, means weight loss.

This surgery does not require large incisions on the abdomen as it is done through laparoscopic methods. It reduces stomach as a long narrow tube and partitioned into two sections, a smaller and a larger. The smaller portion is put to use and the larger one is sealed away from the small intestine.
This actually is similar to having a small stomach. This reduces food intake by a large extent. Small stomach cannot hold a large quantity of food and hence less fat and calories are absorbed by the body.
