Hi & welcome to the forum! You might want to cross post this on the DS forum & the revision/main forum to get more answers.

These posts worry me when I see them, as I guess it's the surgeon that has told you it's a "sadi ds"?
These are in fact two very different surgeries, but I've heard there may be a few surgeons doing the sadi, and billing insurance for a DS (DS is a known and usually covered surgery, where as the sadi is NOT, and is new and considered experimental as there is NO long ter data on it yet).
DS and sadi or Sips NOT THE SAME SURGERY. PERIOD.
