The Difference  Between a Roux-en-Y and a Mini Gastric Bypass

Before and after mini gastric bypass where a new stomach is created and connected to the jejunum. The bypassed portion of the stomach has digestive juice flowing to the jejunum while the new stomach has food flowing to the jejunum.

Both versions of gastric bypass are laparoscopic bariatric surgeries where patients experience significant weight loss. 

During mini gastric bypass surgery, a bariatric surgeon will make incisions to divide your stomach into two pouches, and will attach the new pouch to your small intestine several feet down from the beginning of the intestine. This will reduce the amount of food you can eat and the calories your body can absorb, resulting in transformative weight loss. 

A gastric bypass, also known as a Roux-en-Y, involves more intestinal rerouting than a mini gastric bypass and is not reversible. A gastric bypass also requires larger incisions than a mini gastric bypass. While both surgeries are safe, a mini gastric bypass comes with less risk.

The Quick Two-Step Surgery 

Mini gastric bypass surgery can be completed laparoscopically in an hour by your surgeon in Tijuana, Mexico. Traditional gastric bypass surgery can take up to four hours to complete. 

There are two steps involved in the surgery:

Step 1

The stomach pouch is split into two parts, one part about 25% of the original stomach and the other about 75%. A bariatric surgeon uses a laparoscopic stapler to form the smaller section into a thin tube, leaving you with a smaller pouch to digest food. 

Step 2

The new stomach is attached to the small intestine. After your surgery is complete, food will travel from the smaller stomach and bypass two to seven feet of the small intestine. This greatly limits the number of calories absorbed by the body.

The excess stomach and intestine in the bypass are not removed, to allow digestive fluids from the stomach to travel down to the rest of the intestines. 

The Cost of Your Bariatric Surgery

Mini gastric bypass surgery from Tijuana Bariatrics costs approximately $6,500. This price is competitive compared to weight loss surgeries offered in America and Canada, which can often cost $20,000 or more. 

In addition to your bariatric surgery, the cost for a mini gastric bypass through our bariatric surgery office in Tijuana, Mexico, covers hotel fees, hospital fees, post-operative medication, and nutritional consultations before and after surgery. Our team will provide ground transportation to and from the San Diego airport to Tijuana, Mexico. Your hotel is equipped with the latest technology and is close to a tourist district.

Consider a Gastric Sleeve If a Mini Gastric Bypass Isn't Right For You

Like gastric bypass surgery, gastric sleeve surgery greatly reduces the size of your stomach. This will leave you feeling full after eating less food, and your body will absorb fewer calories. Unlike a gastric bypass, the small intestine is not rerouted during a gastric sleeve.
