Single Anastomosis Gastric Bypass

The single anastomosis gastric bypass (SAGB) is a relatively new procedure, which combines some of the properties of a gastric sleeve and a Roux en Y gastric bypass. The upper part of the stomach is divided into a tube, similar to the top three quarters of a sleeve and then joined to a loop of intestine. It is an operation that combines restriction with some malabsorption, and the result is that it provides good weight loss with great quality of life.
