Duodenal Switch Surgery Description & Pricing
Is Duodenal Switch Surgery Right for You?
Duodenal Switch Surgery
Duodenal Switch weight loss surgery is a procedure an alternative to traditional Gastric Bypass surgery. With Duodenal Switch, a sleeve gastrectomy is performed on the stomach and approximately 75% of the stomach is removed. After the stomach tissue is removed, the remaining stomach is then re-routed to connect below the duodenum. The decreased stomach capacity limits the amount of food one can consume and the re-routing restricts the amount of calories that are absorbed.
It’s important to note individuals who choose duodenal switch surgery are fully committed to a nutritional supplement plan in order to avoid long-term malnutrition.
This procedure is considered minimally invasive and is performed laparoscopically.
Procedure Type: Malabsorptive & Restrictive
