For some patients, diet and exercise may be enough to achieve their weight loss goals; for others, surgery may be necessary. Mini gastric bypass surgery in Mexico is a cheaper option that many patients consider. There are two types of gastric bypass surgery. One is the Roux en-Y, or regular gastric bypass. The other is the mini gastric bypass surgery, also known as single-anastomosis gastric bypass.
Our surgeons in Mexico generally recommend the mini gastric bypass due to its safety, simplicity, cheap cost, and effectiveness. Read on as we will explain the specifics of this surgery, its advantages, and cost.
The mini gastric bypass surgery involves shrinking the size of the stomach and bypassing the most absorptive part of the small intestine, the duodenum. To do this, we divide your stomach into two pouches. The smaller of the two pouches becomes your new stomach. From there, we connect this new, smaller stomach via a gastric tube to the small intestine approximately 5 feet from its starting point.
Single Anastomosis bypass surgery is a restrictive and a malabsorptive procedure. By reducing the size of the stomach (restrictive), the amount of food you can take in will also be reduced, and because the gastric tube will bypass the duodenum, less food, nutrients, and minerals will be digested (malabsorptive). As such, you will lose weight.
We perform this surgery laparoscopically, meaning we will only make four small incisions on your abdomen. Compared to the regular gastric bypass, this surgery is as effective but is also less invasive, requires less surgery time, and you will recover faster. The surgery itself lasts less than 90 minutes. You will stay 2 nights in the hospital for observation, care, and recovery. After the Hospital discharge a third night stay in Monterrey is recommended; on the fourth day you will have a quick follow-up consultation before you head back home.
Afterwards, you can return to work in as little as 5 days. You can resume light physical exercise activity after 2 weeks. We recommend that you do not start an intense workout regimen until a month post-surgery.

As mentioned previously, we require patients to remain in Monterrey for at least 3 nights after their surgery. You will spend the first two nights at the hospital and the third night at your hotel.
