SADI-S is a bariatric surgical technique aimed at achieving adequate weight loss and resolution of diseases associated with severe or morbid obesity. This procedure is a modified duodenal switch in which only one anastomosis is done, meaning that only one incision is made to join both ends of the intestine during the operation.

What are the advantages of SADI-S over the traditional Duodenal Switch?

SADI-S has some advantages over the traditional Duodenal Switch, such as less surgery time, less risk of internal hernia and less pain. At the same time, the advantages of DS are still there, most importantly the weight-loss success rate and high rate of malabsorbtion.
