Transit Bipartition is a surgery method developed for treatment of Type 2 Diabetes. This surgery technique involves the creation of a connection between the stomach and last 1/3 of the small intestines as an alternative route without bypassing any part of the small intestines, allowing the food passing from this partition to trigger small intestine hormones and help control diabetes.
Firstly, it must be pointed out this is a surgical procedure only appropriate for Type 2 diabetes patients. Body Mass Index must be 30 or above. The patient should not have any heart disease and the insulin stores and activity of the patient should be at a suitable level.
The operation is performed using the laparoscopic operation (closed surgery) method. This method utilizes robot arms to create 5 incisions of 0.5 – 1 cm on the abdomen. With this method, this operation takes approximately 1 hour and potential complications during operation are minimised. In addition, this method also increases the post-operation recovery speed. You can be discharged in 3-4 days and return to work in 10 days.
