Losing weight and keeping it off can be a challenge, but being overweight can shorten your life and decrease your quality of life.
A duodenal switch is a type of weight loss surgery that can help patients lose more weight than gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy.
See how Texas Center for Bariatrics & Advanced Surgery in Plano, TX, can help you live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
What Is a Duodenal Switch?
Alternative Procedures Simpler Than Duodenal Switch
Single Anastomosis Duodenal Switch (SADI)
SADI is a type of duodenal switch that involves a sleeve gastrectomy and the rearrangement of the small intestine. It is a simplified version of the classic BPD-DS procedure. SADI bypasses only 60% to 75% of the small bowel and has only one connection to the intestine, resulting in fewer complications.
Dr. Cribbins can perform SADI, but this procedure is typically not covered by insurance.
The omega loop, also known as single anastomosis gastric bypass and mini-gastric bypass, is another kind of bariatric procedure that creates a small, elongated pouch out of the stomach from which the rest of the stomach is permanently divided. Like SADI, this technique requires only one connection, which makes the procedure easier to perform and involves fewer risks.
Dr. Cribbins can help determine which bariatric surgery will be best for you during your consultation in Plano, TX.
