Single anastomosis duodeno-ileal bypass, or SADI, is the latest surgical procedure effective for weight loss and co-morbidities associated with obesity. This is a two-step laparoscopic procedure that combines both duodenum switch and a sleeve at the time of surgery. The first step is known as the vertical sleeve gastrectomy, or gastric sleeve. It's minimally invasive, using only four to five tiny incisions to remove 80% of the stomach. The second step is performed by dividing the upper portion of the duodenum and connecting two-thirds to three-fourths of the way downstream of the small bowel. The procedure results is changing signals from the guy to the brain leading to increased satiety, decreased hunger with less diarrhea and nutritional deficiencies compared to a traditional duodenal switch.
