BEST DUODENAL SWITCH SURGERY IN TIJUANA MEXICO

Performed by a board certified bariatric surgeon, a duodenal switch helps in long term weight loss success

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.

THE PROCEDURE

  • The doctor conducts a Gastric Sleeve, removing around 80 percent of the stomach and converting the remainder into a slender tube.
  • Then divide the small bowel that normally connects to the stomach (called the duodenum) to create the bypass.
  • Consumed food would normally go from the sleeve into the initial part of the small intestine, but it is re-routed or switched to the lower part of the small intestine.
  • Make several small incisions on your abdomen to insert the laparoscope.
  • Medications are administered for your comfort during the weight loss surgery.
