What is SADI?
SADI-S stands for Single anastomosis duodeno-ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy. It’s a mouthful, but one worth knowing about! SADI-S is a new surgical treatment option for morbid obesity that is basically a variant of duodenal switch surgery, in which a single intestinal bypass is made as opposed to two.
As a result,patients spend less time in surgery and are exposed to fewer risks for complications. Initial studies indicate it provides greater weight loss than a standard gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy without increased complications.
