This procedure is a type of bariatric surgery that has shown good results for weight loss. In patients with morbid obesity with diabetes type 2 it can help with the reversal of diabetes in a significant percentage of these cases.
The mini gastric bypass(MGB) - also called One-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass OAGB - was first developed as a modification of the standard Billroth II procedure. A mini gastric bypass creates a long narrow tube of the stomach along its right border, then a loop of the small gut is brought up and connected to this stomach tube at about 180cm - 200cm from the start of the intestine.
Dr Girish Says, “There is growing evidence that MGB (mini gastric bypass) is a safe and effective procedure with many of the features of an ideal bariatric surgery. Pending long-term evaluation, OAGB is a relatively low-risk, and low-failure bariatric procedure. The results are very promising in cases of patients with obesity & diabetes”.
