What is Ileal Transposition?

Ileal transposition (IT) is a surgical procedure done at Apollo Spectra, Kanpur, which helps reduce weight or fat mass and improve your glucose metabolism. This surgical procedure is helpful for those who are suffering from type 2 diabetes. It also helps you improve your lipid metabolism and insulin sensitivity if you are diabetic. This surgery will be highly beneficial for you if you want to reduce your blood sugar or you are suffering from organ damage. This treatment is not recommended for people with low body mass index.

How is Ileal Transposition Performed?

Reports say that ileal transposition surgery is the best treatment for patients with type 2 diabetes to reduce weight. This surgery has proven to be very effective within a few days.

At Apollo Spectra, Kanpur, this surgery is performed by placing the distal part of the small intestine called the ileum between the proximal part of your small intestine or the stomach. The ileum can also be placed in the proximal part of the small intestine without any connection to the stomach.

This surgery is typically performed in two ways. The most common version of this procedure is a sleeve gastrectomy. This surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. The procedure takes about 4 to 5 hours to complete. Your surgeon will make a small surgical incision of around 5mm to 12mm on your abdomen.

During this procedure, your doctor will bring the distal part of your small intestine (ileum) close to your stomach. Then, they will dissect a small segment of your ileum. The ileum will be interposed into the jejunum (the second part of the small intestine). After the ileum is inserted into the jejunum, the last part of the small intestine will act as the midway between the jejunum. Then your surgeon will connect the proximal part of the ileum with the large intestine. They will not remove any part of the large intestine.
