The traditional gastric pass surgery has garnered excellent results for weight loss. However, the procedure is technically challenging and carries a potential risk of 7 % for any kind of complication. The newly popular mini gastric bypass was developed in 1997 by Dr. Rober Rutledge. It is quicker, technology friendly and much safer procedure than the traditional surgery with a lower complication rate of 2.9%. The mini gastric bypass procedure is restrictive and malabsorptive. It means that it restricts your food intake while reducing the size of your stomach. The procedure bypasses up to 6 feet of intestines thus reducing the absorption of food.
