mini gastric bypass. The mini gastric bypass is not endorsed by any asmbs or any of the top academic bariatric surgery programs in the country. It is safe, but it is basically a billroth 2 operation which can cause bile reflux. The fix for that problem is a roux-en-y gastric bypass meaning that for 50 years we have known that a roux-en-y is better than a billroth 2. The b2 is just easier for the surgeon to do.
No. The mini gastric bypass is not an approved surgery and there are so many that are better and safer. Only one surgeon does mini gastric bypass. The band, rny, sleeve, and plication are better.
