Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing Surgery (SIPS), a new bariatric surgery, is a modification of the gastric sleeve surgery. In this video, a leading weight loss surgeon in Las Vegas, Nevada explains the advantages of SIPS bariatric surgery.
“We are talking about the SIPS procedure and how it has advantages over operations such as the gastric sleeve and the gastric bypass. Probably the biggest advantage of SIPS is that it has excellent long term weight loss. We expect from many studies, we expect folks to lose about 70% of their extra weight which is much higher than a bypass, much higher than a sleeve and a whole heck of higher than a lap band. Not only do we see fantastic weight loss but that weight loss is consistent from person to person.
“Other techniques such as lap band for example, you see very variable results for some people lose a lot and other person loses nothing. With SIPS it’s very consistent results across the board, everybody seems to lose about the same amount which is 70% of their extra weight. So it gives us great weight loss, it gives us consistency and that’s why I think it’s a great fit for a lot of our patients.”
