As an alternative to gastric sleeve bypass, a new procedure called Single Anastomosis Duodenal-Ileal Bypass (SADI) has been introduced for cases where patients continue to gain weight after a sleeve gastrectomy. Dr. Choi provides a detailed explanation of how this procedure works.
What is SADI Surgery?
What is a SADI? SADI is involved after a sleeve gastrectomy has failed or the patient is put on weight. What do we do? We will hook or make an anastomosis from the intestines to the duodenum and we will count back from the ileum area 300 centimeters or some people like to go more and make a new connection here at the duodenum and connect the ileum or the small bowel to make that bypass.
