Duodenal Switch

Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch

For More Information

The duodenal switch is one of the most complex and least performed bariatric surgeries. It can be very effective in people with a BMI greater than 40. In fact, studies report that duodenal switch results in more weight loss than gastric bypass. It is also more effective at controlling -- and putting in remission -- type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related illnesses, compared to other weight loss procedures.
