A well established and proven effective approach…

Modernized & Made Simpler
Modernized & Made Simpler

The Mini Gastric Bypass procedure was developed in 1997 with the goal of duplicating the excellent weight loss results of traditional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery while simplifying the procedure, shortening operating times and reducing complications. As tracking research data has accumulated, the Mini Gastric Bypass procedure has gained popularity as the modern alternative to traditional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery –– excellent results, a simpler, more streamlined procedure and reduced overall complication rates.


  • How The Mini Gastric Bypass Works

    The Mini Gastric Bypass works two ways to help you lose weight. First, it reduces the size of your stomach, restricting the amount you can eat.

    Next, it reduces the absorption of what food you do eat, by bypassing a portion of your intestines.

    This dual-stage approach has been shown to be highly effective when combined with changes to eating and lifestyle habits.

    You feel fuller, faster. And absorption of food is reduced.

  • Eligibility For Mini Gastric Bypass

    A Mini Gastric Bypass procedure may be the right solution for you if:

    • You have a BMI of 40 and above or have a BMI between 35 and 40 with obesity-related medical problems

    • Are prepared to make changes in your eating habits and lifestyle

    • Prefer a procedure that requires minimal ongoing intervention or adjustments

    • Do not drink alcohol in excess and do not have an illegal drug dependence

  • Giving Yourself The Best Chance To Succeed

    “My experience with the staff for starters was nothing short of spectacular! Very knowledgeable, attentive, kind and considerate. As for the Surgeon, again nothing short of spectacular. He was very helpful with some pre-operative issues and questions I had was very reassuring before and after the surgery."

    Great team that gives me every confidence of success.


    Life-changing Mini Gastric Bypass surgery

    The Surgeon and his supporting staff were very personable, approachable, and extremely caring. I had questions for the surgeon pre-operatively and they were all answered in a timely manner and in a very patient and caring way. The nurses that I personally met or had spoken to on the phone were qualified, dependable and super friendly. I am glad I chose this Surgeon and SmartShape for my life-changing Mini Gastric Bypass surgery.
