I notice there wasn’t a forum for SIP surgery and up until today I never heard of it. Has anyone here had that done?

It’s Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing surgery and is similar to the duodenal switch. Doesn’t seem to be very common.

Most discussions on the SIPS (aka SADI, Loop DS or Modified or Simplified DS) usually happen in the DS forums as it is being promoted as an alternative to the traditional DS (though the mini-bypass is a similar alternative to the traditional RNY gastric bypass and gets its own forum). Perhaps there isn't yet enough traffic to warrant its own forum (Alex?) so the DS forums are its closest home for now.

It is being done more, as one of the big benefits that is being promoted for it is that it is almost as good as the traditional DS, but is more "accessible" (i.e, simpler so more surgeons can perform it). However, it is still considered to be experimental or investigational and is not yet accepted by the ASMBS or routinely covered by US health insurance.
