What is Single Anastomosis Duodenal-Ileal Bypass?

Single Anastomosis Duodenal Ileal Bypass sometimes referred to as SADI Bypass or SADI-S (Single Anastomosis Duodenal Ileal bypass with sleeve). It is an upgraded version of the Duodenal Switch Surgery

However, the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery has recently changed SADI. To an approved weight loss surgery from its previous category of investigational. Additionally, this procedure involves a combination of Gastric Sleeve with an aggressive Gastric Bypass of the small intestine. Unlike the duodenal switch, which consists of two intestinal bypass routes. SADI surgery only contains one which reduces the time in surgery as well as risks.

How does SADI Bypass work?

Subsequently, doctors can combine SADI surgery into one surgical procedure or two separate surgeries depending on the patient. Equally important, patients who have extremely heavier body weight often benefit from having the first stage of surgery. And then waiting several months until they have the second stage of the surgery. Therefore, it allows the patient time to lose a substantial amount of weight between surgeries which lowers risk factors.

  • The first stage of the surgery is gastric sleeve surgery which significantly reduces the size of the stomach. Consequently, using a laparoscopy the surgeon accesses the stomach via several small abdominal incisions. However, removes about 80-85% of the lower portion of the stomach leaving it resembling a small banana. Lastly, the smaller stomach will help the patient with portion control going forward. Besides this, it also reduces the production of the hormone ghrelin which sends hunger signals to the body.

  • The second stage of the surgery takes a portion of our small intestine. Re-routes it to bypass about 3/4 of the digestive system. Significantly, it restricts the number of calories that the body can absorb from any food ingested. Afterward, this also restricts the absorption of vitamins and nutrients. That the body critically needs to remain healthy and function so daily supplements will be critical after SADI surgery.
