Thanks for your interest in the SIPS procedure! SIPS is the newest weight loss surgery that is sanctioned by the ASMBS, and results in some of the best data on diabetes remission and weight loss.
Most long term studies on weight loss surgeries show that duodenal switch has the best long term weight loss and highest diabetes remission rates. It has never gained wide acceptance though because of its higher short-and-long-term complication rates. SIPS has the potential to provide equivalent long-term results with a much lower complication rate. Our surgeons are the only in the region to offer this innovative procedure!
As a gastric sleeve is the first step in a SIPS procedure, it can be a great option for sleeve patients who need to lose more weight.
