Anyone know about Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB)?

I just saw a special on the Discovery Health Channel that talked about a newer bypass procedure called Mini Gastric Bypass (MGB). You can go on YT and watch videos if you search on the actor Gil Gerard. He went though it and it worked well.

Though I hate the idea of needing to take special vitamins for the rest of my life, it beats being fat and taking a lot of meds for other conditions. Also, the surgery only takes about half an hour. There is a weight limit maximum of 350 pounds (25 stone).

If anyone has info about this or any ideas, please let me know.
