Having difficulty losing weight can make you feel as if your goals are out of reach. Perth Surgical & Bariatrics offers stomach intestinal pylorus sparing (SIPS) surgery as a solution.
Stomach Intestinal Pylorus Sparing (SIPS) Surgery
A SIPS procedure combines the benefits of both a gastric sleeve and a standard gastric bypass procedure. To help you lose weight, SIPS shrinks your stomach and bypasses part of the digestion process.
How Does the SIPS Procedure Work?
By combining gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy, the SIPS procedure is known as a hybrid procedure.
The bariatric surgeon will remove most of your stomach in the first part of your procedure, which will reduce your appetite and level of the hunger-inducing hormone ghrelin.
As part of the SIPS procedure, the small intestine is divided into the small bowel and small bowel. Therefore, part of your small intestine is bypassed. You lose weight as a result of a reduction in your consumption and absorption of calories.
What are the Benefits of SIPS Bariatric Surgery?
Over other weight-loss surgical procedures, SIPS offers many advantages, including:
- Loss of weight results in better results
- Reduced risk of postoperative complications
- Patients who have had previous weight loss surgery are given a second chance
How Does the SIPS Procedure Work if I’ve Already had a Sleeve Gastrectomy?
By creating the bypass, it is easy to convert your sleeve to SIPS. Individual patients may experience different results.
Do I Qualify for the SIPS Procedure?
With SIPS, you can restore your weight loss if you have gained unwanted kilos. Besides being safe and effective, it is also a safe option for people who need to lose significant weight and have never had weight loss surgery. Only an experienced professional surgeon like Dr. Ravi Rao, who has extensive knowledge of bariatric surgery, is qualified to determine if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.
