Northern Westchester Hospital Surgeon Mitchell Roslin, MD Conducts
International Broadcast of Bariatric Surgery Technique
New Surgical Technique – Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing Surgery, SIPS – Addresses Challenges
of Established Weight Loss Surgeries
Mount Kisco, New York (May 21, 2015) — Northern Westchester Hospital announced today that
Mitchell Roslin, MD, Director of Bariatric Surgery at Northern Westchester Hospital, conducted an
international broadcast of a leading edge bariatric surgery procedure called Stomach Intestinal PylorusSparing Surgery or SIPS. This innovative procedure is a modification to the duodenal switch procedure
and benefits patients by helping to stabilize blood glucose levels after surgery.
The Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing Surgery technique was broadcast live on May 19, 2015 to the
5th Annual BOMSS Spring Bariatric Symposium at Homerton in London, England on Controversies,
Revisions, Innovations, Metabolic Effects & Live Surgeries.
“Patients needing bariatric surgery typically face a multitude of health issues, so anything that we can
do to enhance existing procedures and improve outcomes is tremendously beneficial to patients.
Through a recent study involving 129 patients, the SIPS procedure was shown to result in fewer
complications than other procedures and patients involved in the study maintained an average weight
loss of 40% of total body weight or 85% of excess weight after the first year,” stated Dr. Mitchell Roslin,
Director of Bariatric Surgery at Northern Westchester Hospital.
Dr. Roslin has presented and spoken internationally about improved outcomes that are associated with
preserving the pyloric valve, which is located at the bottom of the stomach and controls the emptying of
solid food from the stomach. The SIPS technique is based on several research studies conducted by
Dr. Roslin and combines a sleeve gastrectomy with a procedure that shortens the amount of intestine
used to absorb food. The expectation of the SIPS weight loss procedure is that it can provide weight
loss that is greater than sleeve or bypass, and minimize the risk of micronutrient and vitamin deficiency.
