Duodenal Switch

Duodenal switch surgery (“biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch” or “DS”) makes the stomach smaller, reroutes the intestines, and removes the gallbladder. As a result, patients:

  • Feel less hungry
  • Feel full sooner after eating
  • Absorb fewer calories from the food they eat
  • Lose most of their excess weight within one year
  • Keep the weight off over the long-term
  • Have significant health improvement
