Mini-gastric (one-anastomosis) bypass becoming a mainstream bariatric operation in Ireland and UK

Dr Chris Debruyne already preformed a few thousand  mini -gastric bypass surgeries what makes him one of the most experienced surgeons in Europe in this field.

The MGB Consensus attendees all reported prior experience with other bariatric operations – Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), gastric banding (GB) and sleeve gastrectomy (SG).


The laparoscopic operation (Figure 1) creates two components: first, a restrictive lesser-curvature gastric pouch; second, a 200 cm or longer jejunal bypass with a single antecolic gastro-jejunostomy (GJ) anastomosis, which leads to significant fat malabsorption.
