Our Surgeonssuccess stories

What is Transit Bipartition Surgery?

A Sleeve Gastrectomy is performed:

  • The small intestine is then divided into two, form a point 80-200 cm proximal to its junction with the large intestine.
  • The cut end is connected to the stomach.
  • The upper end (coming from the stomach) is connected to a point 80-150 cm proximal to the junction of the small intestine with the large intestine. This distance may vary from patient to patient.
  • By this means, approximately 1/3 of foods taken orally pass through the duodenal (the natural path), whereas 2/3 pass through the last part of the small intestines.

Its advantages:

  • Its healing rate in Type 2 diabetes is higher than that of all other procedures.
  • Its leakage rate is lower than that of other procedures.
  • Since stomach pressure in this procedure is lower than that in sleeve gastrectomy, it is less likely to involve an enlargement in the stomach volume over time.
  • It makes all parts of the small intestine endoscopically accessible.
  • Since the entire digestive system is used, it is almost unlikely to cause vitamin, mineral, iron and calcium deficiencies.

Its disadvantages:

Its long-term outcomes are not yet known because it is a relatively newer procedure that other procedures.

Its complications:

​​​​​​Its complications and complication rates are similar to that of other surgical procedures.
