Duodenal Switch

What is Duodenal Switch Surgery?

This surgery involves removing about 85 percent of the stomach. However, the duodenal switch also includes the division and rearranging of the intestines, which minimizes the amount of calories that are absorbed by the body. The duodenal switch has been said to produce the greatest weight-loss of all procedures. This surgery has also helped patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and high triglycerides.

To see if this is the right option for you, speak with one of our doctors.
