SADI-S is an advanced type of bariatric surgery. It combines a sleeve gastrectomy with a duodenal-ileal bypass. Typically, it is done on individuals with severe obesity. It aids in weight loss and improve obesity-related health conditions.

In the first part of the procedure, a sleeve gastrectomy is performed. Here a large part of the stomach is removed. This leaves a smaller, tube-like stomach. The small intestine is rerouted bypassing a large portion of it. Thus there is a smaller food intake due to the reduced stomach size. This cuts down on calorie absorption in the bypassed part of the intestine.

The benefits of SADI-S are significant. They include substantial weight loss. And improvement of obesity-related conditions. Examples are type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and sleep apnea. It can lead to an improved quality of life. It also results in better nutrition than other bypass operations. There is a more natural flow of digestive enzymes.

Ideal candidates for SADI-S are people with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or above. Or a BMI of 35 or above. With related serious health conditions like type 2 diabetes or heart disease. These people have tried and failed to lose weight. Diet, exercise, and medication haven’t worked. They should be ready to commit to lifestyle changes. Such as lifelong diet and physical activity changes.
As with all surgical procedures, SADI-S is not without risks. There may be nutritional deficiencies and surgical problems. It may involve the need for additional procedures. A thorough assessment by a healthcare provider is necessary. Talk to your doctor. It will help you determine if this surgical procedure is your best option. Ask for a free consultation today!
