What is a Duodenal Switch Surgery (BPD/DS)?
The duodenal switch Surgery (DS) is a popular bariatric surgery because patients are able to eat a near-normal meal (in much smaller quantities) while still experiencing significant long-term weight loss. With this operation, the majority of the most stretchable portion of the stomach is permanently removed, but basic stomach structure remains the same. In addition, the surgeon will also bypass roughly two-thirds to three-fourths of the upper small intestines, resulting in a significant decrease in calorie absorption. Weight loss is achieved both through restriction of food consumption as well as malabsorption.
