SADI (Duodenal Switch)


What is SADI?

SADI-S, or Single anastomosis duodeno–ileal bypass with sleeve gastrectomy, is another option available to our patients in San Diego who are trying to lose weight.

SADI-S is relatively new in the Bariatric world, but is showing tremendous success in patients who have persistent severe obesity despite previously sleeve gastrectomy, or present with an initial BMI of greater than 50kg/m2.

SADI-S is often considered Revisional Surgery as it is often used following sleeve gastrectomy.

Body Mass Index (BMI) Weight Loss Calculator

In order to be considered a suitable candidate for weight loss surgery, you must have either morbid obesity or obesity with co-morbid health problems such as diabetes. We use the body mass index (BMI) system to calculate your body weight:

  • BMI of 30 to 40 indicates obesity
  • BMI of higher than 40 is commonly referred to as morbid obesity.

Insurance typically covers surgery if your BMI is greater than 40, or in some instances between 35 and 40, if you have ongoing illnesses that are related to obesity. The FDA has approved weight loss surgery for people with a BMI of greater that 30, but these lower BMI categories are not typically covered by insurance.
