SIPS/Duodenal Switch

What is SIPS?

SIPS stands for stomach intestinal pylorus sparing surgery, also known as a modified duodenal switch surgery. It is the latest treatment for those suffering from obesity. By removing part of the stomach, and changing the channel through which nutrients pass in the lower intestine we can change the process of digestion. Digestion of protein and fat only occurs in the lower portion (approximately 7 feet) of the lower intestines. This surgery is meant for people who are very obese, haven’t been able to lose weight and have a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 50 or higher.

Why Is It Done?

SIPS is easier to perform and diminishes the diarrhea and nutritional deficiencies seen with the original duodenal switch, while also helping patients lose a lot of weight. This procedure is for severely obese people who are not able to lose weight with regular methods. Most surgeons will not perform SIPS surgery unless you are super-obese (BMI of 50 or higher) and your weight is causing serious health problems. Even after surgery, you will still need to eat healthy and exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

How Well Does It Work?

SIPS is very effective. Most people lose 75% to 80% of their excess weight and stay at their new weight. Long-term studies show that many people gain back 20-25 percent of the weight they lost after other procedures. Those who achieve the highest success follow the recommended exercise and eating plan and have regular visits with their medical team.

Advantages

  • Less invasive with a relatively short recovery time

  • Favorable long term results for weight loss and diabetes

  • Lower complication rate than traditional duodenal switch procedure

  • Effective procedure to lower cholesterol and triglycerides
