Single-Anastamosis Loop Duodenal Switch Proves Safe and Effective

Drs. Keith Wright and Gerardo Carcamo with South Texas Surgeons have provided thousands of patients in San Antonio with safe and effective weight loss surgery for over 15 years. In addition to San Antonio’s largest experience with the Lap-Band, they have also treated the most patients in San Antonio with the single-anastamosis loop duodenal switch (known also as SIPS or SADI). This procedure improves the results of the sleeve gastrectomy on weight loss and diabetes resolution without some of the side effects seen occasionally with the gastric bypass. They are reporting excellent results a year after surgery without any major complications.

South Texas Surgeons continues to offer a full range of services tailored to each patient’s specific needs. Whether it’s a minimally invasive procedure such as a gastric balloon or Lap-band, or a more permanent solution such as a sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, or duodenal switch, we will help individualize a treatment plan for you. Combined with our nutritional, psychological and group support, we are committed to helping you achieve your weight loss goals.
