Best Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

with Duodenal Interposition (SG - DII)

in Bangalore, India

Abdominal cavity is entered through small holes, using 5 to 7 ports. Up to 80 percent of left side of the stomach is removed using linear cutter staplers. If patient is obese, stomach tube, of approximately 60 to 120 ml, is fashioned (Sleeve Gastrectomy), over a calibration tube kept in the stomach. If the patient is not obese, then stomach tube of higher volume is created, so that patient can eat normally.

First part of the duodenum is disconnected, 4 cm distal to the stomach, using linear cutter stapler. 170 cm segment of the ileum is isolated by dividing the ileum 30 cm & 200 cm proximal to the ileocecal junction (junction of the small and large bowels). Bowel continuity is restored by joining the remaining ends of the ileum. This ileal segment is joined above to the proximal divided end of the duodenum and below to the jejunum 50 cm distal to the duodenojejunal flexure (Ileal interposition). All the mesenteric gaps are closed.

Any patient suffering from type 2 diabetes who is fit, aged between 18 to 65 years, duration of diabetes > 3 years and < 20 years, post prandial serum C - peptide levels > 0.9 ng/ml are eligible for metabolic surgery. Obese patients with BMI ≥ 30 kg/m2 and type 2 diabetes we recommend metabolic surgery if they are fit. In these patients surgery results in resolution of type 2 diabetes and weight loss. For obese patients with BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2 and < 30kg/m2, non-obese patients (Normal weight – BMI < 23 kg/m2, Overweight – BMI ≥ 23 kg/m2 and < 25 kg/m2) we do metabolic surgery.
