Duodenal Switch

Duodenal Switch

Biliary Pancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch offers a way for patients affected with severe morbid obesity, typically those with a body mass index of more than 50, to lose up to 85 percent of excess weight. This procedure creates a smaller stomach pouch to hold food, giving you an earlier feeling of fullness at mealtimes. About 75 percent of the remaining part of the stomach is removed, and the small intestine is re-routed to the stomach pouch. Ultimately, BPD with Duodenal Switch allows for less absorption of calories and nutrients into the body, which can lead to significant weight loss.
