Dr. Roslin Pioneers New Technique in Bariatric Surgery
Although the duodenal switch is an effective procedure for weight loss, it currently accounts for less than 5% of all bariatric surgeries due to concerns about technical difficulty, nutritional deficiency, and frequent bowel movements. But stomach intestinal pylorus-sparing surgery, or SIPS, is a promising new bariatric surgery technique. Pioneered by Mitchell Roslin, MD, a bariatric surgeon at Northern Westchester Hospital in Westchester, NY, SIPS has been shown to mitigate those concerns of duodenal switch.
Roslin says this new bariatric surgery, SIPS, is easier to perform and diminishes the diarrhea and nutritional deficiencies seen with duodenal switch, while also helping patients lose a lot of weight. In the first study of the procedure that Roslin presented at Obesity Week in Boston last month, which enrolled 129 patients between January 2013 and July 2014, there was an average weight loss of 40% at 1 year.
