Are you a good candidate for The Single Anastomosis Duodenal Switch?

It is the best choice for patients with high BMIs (>60 kg/m2) as well as the best option for revisional surgery in patients that have inadequate weight loss or significant weight regain after a sleeve gastrectomy. The nice thing about patients with high BMIs is that they can start off with just the sleeve gastrectomy. If they do well, this procedure has better weight loss than the sleeve or the gastric bypass but has the highest risk of malabsorptive complications such as vitamin deficiencies and protein deficiency. The patients therefore have to be compliant with frequent follow-up and lifelong vitamin and mineral supplementation.
