What is mini gastric bypass surgery?

Mini gastric bypass surgery refers to a gastric bypass but with a single anastomosis. The traditional Y bypass has two intestine-stomach junctions and the mini gastric bypass only has one intestine-stomach junction.
It consists of making a small stomach to make the patient satisfied by eating a smaller amount of food. And use the intestine as a traditional bypass but with a single union or anastomosis.
