Mini Gastric Bypass surgery is a procedure in which a long narrow gastric pouch is created and is joined directly to the small intestine. It is also known as Single Anastomosis Gastric Bypass or malabsorptive procedure. This procedure is similar to gold standard Roux-en-Y procedure but here the gastric pouch size and the diameter of anastomosis is considerably larger than Roux-en-Y.

- Not much suitable for vegetarian patients and smokers.
- Dyspepsia (5.6% of patients)
- Dumping syndrome ( Dumping syndrome occurs when food from stomach moves to small intestine too quickly. one can prevent dumping syndrome by making changes in diet after surgery. Eating smaller meals and limiting food with high sugar content also helps)
- Marginal ulcers and malnutrition can occur if proper diet or instructions are not followed post-surgery.
Complications that can happen include bleeding, infection, internal herniation, malnutrition and a leak from the site of anastomosis i.e. gastrojejunostomy resulting in an infection or abscess, deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. However, at our center, the total complication rate is less than 1% which is similar to other procedures, like a gall bladder or hernia surgery.
This surgery not only helps patients to lose massive weight but also improves other obesity related diseases like Type 2 Diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, joint pains, pcod and infertility etc. One important aspect of weight loss surgery is life style modification.
