When choosing the best bariatric surgery option, Roux-n-Y gastric bypass (RNY) and Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) are high-quality and effective procedures. They provide significant and permanent weight loss in a short period of time by restricting the amount of food you can eat and reducing the number of calories absorbed. Obesity-related metabolic disorders, such as diabetes, are also cured completely or alleviated with these two surgeries.
In mini bypass, there is only one intestinal rerouting and it is a quicker operation. As a result, the risk of complications goes down with MGB compared to traditional bypass. Both procedures diminish GERD/Reflux symptoms at one-year post-op.
In order to choose your most suitable operation, it’s critical to understand the pros and cons of both surgeries. This article will explain the significant benefits, similarities, differences, and results that patients can expect from gastric bypass surgery and one-anastomosis gastric bypass surgery.
