Essential comprehensive textbook on MGB and OAGB

Compared to other bariatric operations, these procedures are simpler, more rapid, highly effective in weight loss, resolution of co-morbidities and improvement in quality of life, and are easily modified or reversed

The Minigastric Bypass and its Spanish variant – the One-Anastomosis Gastric Bypass, have been increasing rapidly with experience in Europe and Latin America.  Indeed, the MGB is now the most common bypass in India and in a number of Middle Eastern countries. Early postulated complications and their avoidance or treatment are discussed thoroughly. Reflux and cancer are actually very rare or non-existent. 

Compared to other bariatric operations, these procedures are simpler, more rapid, highly effective in weight loss, resolution of co-morbidities and improvement in quality of life, and are easily modified or reversed.

There has been no comprehensive textbook on this surgery. Accordingly, the MGB-OAGB International Society, with Editor Prof. Mervyn Deitel (who was Editor-in-Chief of Obesity Surgery for 19 years), has published a complete, well-illustrated textbook Essentials of Mini – One Anastomosis Gastric Bypass, with 33 chapters by 155 expert surgeons, covering all aspects, including revision of sleeve gastrectomy and other more complex bariatric operations to MGB or OAGB.

The book retails as an e-book for US$109 (107,09 €, £91.00) OR in Hardcover for US$149.00 (129.99 €, £114.00). It can be obtained via the book’s homepage here
