DUODENAL SWITCH SURGERY
The DS is a complex procedure that induces weight loss by sleeve gastrectomy and intestinal bypass. This approach results in decreased absorption of food. With this procedure, the surgeon removes a large percentage of the stomach so that the stomach takes the shape of a tube (sleeve gastrectomy). The lower intestine is then divided much further downstream than with gastric bypass so that two thirds or more of the intestine is bypassed, leaving only a few feet of the intestine where food and digestive enzymes meet. This is the intestinal bypass portion of the operation.
The name duodenal switch comes from the fact that in this operation the intestinal bypass starts at the duodenum. The first part of the intestine, the duodenum, is divided and attached to the lower portion of the small intestine, the ileum.
Getting a duodenal switch in Tijuana Mexico is your best opportunity to improve your quality of life.
