The journey to a healthy new you starts at CHI Saint Joseph Health. Our surgeons specialize in a wide variety of weight loss surgery options, including SIPS surgery (also called stomach intestinal pylorus-sparing). With this type of surgery, patients can expect a majority of their weight loss in the first year and often see significant improvement in diabetes.

During the SIPS procedure your surgeon will remove part of the stomach, similar to the traditional sleeve gastrectomy, and reroute the small bowel using a single loop anastomosis. By creating a smaller stomach, the amount of food you can consume at a meal is restricted, helping you feel fuller sooner. This technique leaves the pylorus intact, which is an important part of the digestive process, including the absorption of vitamins and minerals.
