Benefits of Loop Duodenal Switch Surgery (loop-DS, SADI, SIPS)
Dr Harald Puhalla, Bariatric Surgeon, is proud to offer the laparoscopic loop DS surgery to his weight-loss patients. Loop DS is a modern procedure that combines two elements of other types of weight-loss surgeries to deliver even better results. After loop DS surgery, patients consume only a fraction of their usual amount of food, and only a fraction of what they do consume is absorbed by the body.
During the procedure, Dr. Puhalla will alter your digestive tract in such a way that the amount of food you can ingest at one time is dramatically reduced. Part of the stomach is removed, leaving a much smaller stomach; the surgeon then creates a partial loop bypass of your intestines. The bypass causes moderate malabsorption and a significant limiting of the calories the body absorbs. Patients often report drastic weight loss as well as the improvement or event resolution of issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnoea, and more.
As all other weight loss operations this type of surgery is minimally invasive, meaning that it is lower-risk and that recovery is generally more comfortable.
