Duodenal Switch

Duodenal Switch for Weight Loss

The duodenal switch is a procedure where patients can expect to lose 70 percent of their excess weight.

This operation is both restrictive and malabsorptive and is appropriate for a small population of patients.

Duodenal Switch Leads to Weight Loss Success

The stomach is divided into a long sleeve and then connected to the lower portion of the small bowel. Due to the significant malabsorption associated with this procedure, patients must be committed to a lifetime of vitamin and mineral supplementation.
