What is the Mini-Gastric Bypass?  MGB = Short, Simple, Effective Weight Loss Surgery, that can be easily revised if needed

  • The Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) is a Short, Simple, Successful, Reversible Laparoscopic gastric bypass weight loss surgery. The operation usually takes only 30 min., hospital stay less than 24 hours. The Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB) is low risk, has excellent long term weight loss, minimal pain and can be easily reversed or revised.
  • Dr. Rutledge’s opinion: the MGB is short, simple and revisable; Like the Band but it is powerful like the RNY but unlike the RNY it is easily revisable (~30-60 minutes.)
  • The MGB cuts hunger by over half in contrast to the band which leaves patients hungry and vomiting when they eat healthy foods.
  • Why have over 6,000 people come from every state in America and from over a dozen foreign countries to have surgery with Dr. Rutledge?
  • Why have thousands of people turned down a free, insurance paid, RNY or band, and paid, out of their own pocket, for an MGB!
  • Find out why doctors (surgeons, ER physicians, anesthesiologists, gynecologists, internists, family doctors and gastroenterologists) nurses and dentists are choosing to forgo their insurance coverage for a band or a RNY and come to Dr. Rutledge for the MGB?
  • Why are surgeons in France, England, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Sicily, Germany, Austria, Spain, Turkey, India, Lebanon, Israel, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, Costa Rica, Columbia, and more now choosing to abandon the band, reject the RNY and offer the MGB?

  3. Hello Dr. Rutledge. You did my MGB in March of 2000 and did my husband Tommy’s in November of 2000. We have both been very happy with the results. Our 24 year old daughter suffers from pseudo tumor cerbi. I have recently learned that a gastric bypass has a 95 percent cure of pseudo tumor. Are there any doctors that are performing the MGB near Little Rock that you have trained? If her insurance does not cover the cost of the surgery, what would the cash price be?

  4. I am wanting to get in touch with Dr. De Fonseka (GI) doc that was working with Dr. Rutledge. I need some past medical records of procedure he did on me for doctors here in my home town of Denver Co. How do I reach anyone involved in the MGB which I had by you 10 years ago?

    1. Good luck!
      I went through that process last year and never got through to Dr. R. Never understood why.

  5. Hi dr. Rutledge. I will be celebrating my fourteenth year of my operation June 11th. I am pleased to say that the seven people that were in my litter I keep in touch with three others. We have all kept our weight off. So happy to see that you are still doing your magic

    1. I am a ten year success story, but I have some questions and I can’t get anyone on phones. I even tried the doc in Florida and I can’t get answers. How does anybody get Information when needing help?

  6. How does anyone get to talk to Dr. Rutledge if they need medical advice from him since he is not around most if the time? I feel abandoned..

  7. I am interested in a revision. I had my MGB 7-8 years ago and have gained 30lbs back. I need to know where I can get it done and how much a revision is? I had mine in Rancho Cucamunga, CA.
