Single-Anastomosis Duodenal Switch (SIPS)


Single-Anastomosis Duodenal Switch is now offered at our center for previous patients who had the gastric sleeve and are either regaining weight or have lost weight but need to lose additional weight.

The duodenum is separated, just below the pyloric valve, from the remaining intestinal tract. Around 300 centimeters of the small intestine is measured from the terminal ileum and that loop is connected to the stomach. This longer channel leads to greater absorption of nutrients and vitamins and fewer bowel movements compared with the regular Duodenal Switch procedure (DS).

SIPS may be covered by your insurance if you meet medical criteria, please call our office for a consultation at 718-283-7403.
