Single Anastomosis Duodenal Switch

The Single Anastomosis Duodenal switch (SADI-S/SIPS) is a welcomed modification of the older and more traditional Duodenal Switch Procedure. This procedure starts by creating a Sleeve Gastrectomy, reducing the size of the stomach by 80% and removing that portion from the body.

The second step divides the intestine just after the stomach followed by reconnecting the ileum as a loop. The ileum is the portion of small intestine furthest away from the stomach.

This procedure helps patients lose weight in two ways:

This procedure is an excellent option for patients with very high BMI and/or severe uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus 2. This procedure is not a good option for patients with severe acid reflux or Barrett's Esophagus as these patients would be better served with a Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass.
