Duodenal Switch (SADI)
Duodenal Switch surgery, also known as Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing Surgery (SIPS), or Single Anastomosis Duodenal Ileostomy (SADI), is an effective bariatric surgery that combines restriction and malabsorption to promote weight loss.
Southwest Bariatric Surgeons offers duodenal switch surgery as a treatment option for patients struggling with obesity. Our experienced surgeons are committed to providing our patients with compassionate care and the highest quality of treatment options for duodenal switch surgery and other types of weight loss surgery.
What is Duodenal Switch Surgery?
Duodenal switch surgery is a bariatric surgery that involves both restriction and malabsorption to achieve weight loss. The procedure involves creating a gastric sleeve and reconnecting the small intestine to reduce the absorption of calories and nutrients.
Benefits of Duodenal Switch Surgery
Duodenal switch surgery offers several benefits to patients struggling with obesity, including:
- Significant weight loss: Duodenal switch surgery can result in significant weight loss, leading to improved health outcomes.
- Improved health: Weight loss surgery can improve or even resolve many obesity-related health issues, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea.
- Sustained weight loss: Duodenal switch surgery has been shown to result in sustained weight loss over time, providing long-term benefits for patients.
How does Duodenal Switch Surgery Work?
Duodenal switch surgery works by combining two procedures: a sleeve gastrectomy and a biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch.
During the procedure, the surgeon will remove a large portion of the stomach, leaving a small sleeve-shaped stomach. The small intestine is then reconnected to this gastric sleeve, bypassing a portion of the small intestine, which reduces the absorption of calories and nutrients.
Duodenal Switch Surgery using daVinci Robotic Surgery
Southwest Bariatric Surgeons uses the daVinci robotic surgery system to perform duodenal switch surgery. The daVinci system is a state-of-the-art surgical technology that allows for greater precision, control, and visualization during the surgery. This results in a shorter hospital stay, less pain, and a faster recovery time for the patient.
During the procedure, the surgeon will make small incisions in the abdomen and insert robotic instruments and a camera. The surgeon will then control the robotic instruments from a console in the operating room, allowing for greater precision and control during the surgery.
