Duodenal Switch Surgery (DS) is a powerful weight loss procedure that reduces the stomach size while rerouting or “switching” the small intestines.
Initially, about 70% of the stomach is removed, causing restriction as the first component of weight loss. This restrictive portion of the duodenal switch creates a new “sleeve-stomach” exactly as the gastric sleeve surgery (VSG).
Duodenal Switch Surgery $6,500 dlls
The duodenal switch surgery is one of the newest bariatric procedure available. It is gaining popularity because of it’s highest expected weight loss and largest reduction in comorbidities compared to other procedures.
This procedure is known medically as biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS). A significant benefit of the DS procedure is the preservation of the pyloric valve, leaving the bile and pancreatic fluid intact.
