Gastric bypass is a surgical method to treat obesity. In this procedure, size of the stomach is reduced to facilitate early satiety and bypassing a section of the intestine limits food absorption. Gastric bypass is normally carried out by a Roux-En-Y configuration where the stomach and intestine are anastomosed.

When a Single (or) One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass Surgery (or) Mini Gastric Bypass is considered, the procedure is simplified with reduced operating time & number of anastomosis. It is performed laparoscopically under General Anesthesia. During OAGB procedure, the size of the stomach is reduced by stapling the stomach so that a pouch is created. The pouch is separated from the rest of stomach, but the size and volume is more than the micropouch of Roux-en-Y Bypass. This tubular gastric pouch is then anastomosed to the small intestine. About 200 cm of the intestine is bypassed that would otherwise be used for the food absorption.

Mini Gastric Bypass helps in weight loss by limiting the food intake by lowering the appetite and decreases the amount of calories absorbed by the body. Rapid weight loss occurs in the first six months after the weight loss surgery, and then weight loss continues slowly up to another eighteen months.
