Prior to the development of the mini gastric bypass, Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (RNY) was the laparoscopic bypass surgery of choice. But many surgeons and patients believe the MGB is a great alternative. It uses a long narrow tube that is typically connected to the esophagus, moving it to the small intestine. From beginning to end, the surgery takes an hour or less, with patients leaving the hospital the following day. It still ahs the same successful weight loss, but with less side effects, a faster recovery, and a less invasive procedure included. It also has fewer risks than the RNY and other gastric bypass surgery procedures, and is cheaper for patients.
