Obesity, if left unchecked can lead to various obesity related health problems. SIPS bariatric surgery is an effective solution to overcome obesity and lead a healthy life. SIPS (Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-sparing surgery) is a modified duodenal switch that offers early results as compared to gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery.  It involves the formation of a sleeve slightly larger than the standard sleeve, and allows patients to achieve long term fat loss through lesser food consumption and neuroendocrine changes. Continuing the discussion, the post provides an overview of SIPS bariatric surgery. Read on. 
Working Mechanism
The surgery involves the formation of a gastric sleeve - slightly larger than usual sleeve. Formation of sleeve is followed with an attachment placed below the pyloric valve, which regulates the transfer of food from stomach to the midgut. Patients post SIPS weight loss surgery don’t have to follow a strict diet. They feel satiated after small portion of food, without any dumping syndrome. In addition, SIPS surgeons re-route the intestine, in order to introduce neuroendocrine reflexes that facilitate weight loss. The formation of a small digestive channel post surgery helps reduce weight gain through decreased calories absorption. 
SIP weight loss surgery eliminates various contingencies faced by patients post standard gastric bypass surgery, such as 
  • Dumping syndrome
  • Unstable blood sugar level
  • Intolerance for specific food items 
  • Ulcer at the upper joint
Post Surgery Care
A diet plan is important to achieve successful results post SIPS gastric surgery. Post surgery patients are required to have multiple consultations with dieticians, as part of their behavioral change program. Diet plans are tailor made to meet nutritional needs of the patient. Some food habits post surgery include:
  • Chew food slowly and thoroughly
  • Avoid canned food products 
  • Say no to alcohol
  • Eliminate snacking between meals 
  • Stay away from tobacco products
Wrapping Up
Though the results from SIPS bariatric surgery may vary from one individual to another, the right approach can help almost every patient achieve their weightloss goals. For best results, it is advisable to go for a highly knowledgeable and experienced surgeon for obesity surgery in your area. Read customer reviews to make an informed choice. Lastly, clear all your surgery related doubts before signing on the dotted line.
