What is bariatric surgery?

Bariatric & Metabolic surgery is the name given to surgical weight loss procedures. Bariatric surgery elicits a metabolic and hormonal response and in conjunction with dietary and lifestyle changes, aids in significant weight loss. Consequently, patients undergoing bariatric surgery can experience an improvement and or resolution of obesity related co-morbidites, improvement in overall health, quality of life and mental health.

Patients may also undergo bariatric surgery to improve and in some cases resolve obesity-related co-morbidities such as:

  • Obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus
  • Hypertension
  • Dyslipidaemia

Single anastomosis duodenal interposition (SADI)

, Dr Scott Whiting

A SADI surgery is a variant of the duodenal switch. Using keyhole surgery, a narrow stomach sleeve is created, reducing the size of the stomach. The first part of the intestine is divided, and the remaining portion of the stomach is connected directly to a section of the small intestine, allowing food to bypass 2/3 of the small intestine where calories and nutrients are typically absorbed.

Revision bariatric surgery

Revision bariatric surgery may be necessary when a patient who has previously undergone bariatric procedure requires a conversion to a different operation. Factors leading to revision surgery vary, but may include reflux or weight regain, however each case is carefully considered, and a thorough assessment is completed before additional surgical measures are recommended.

Non-surgical weight loss procedures

In addition to surgical weight loss procedures, Dr Scott Whiting and his multi-disciplinary team are also one of the few clinics in Australia to offer the Allurion gastric weight loss balloon. It is a non-surgical procedure designed to reset your eating habits and kickstart your weight loss journey.
