Duodenal Switch Weight Loss Surgery

The weight loss surgery known as the duodenal switch or DS (biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) is a well established weight loss surgical procedure that provides excellent weight loss and long term resolution of health conditions associated with obesity. The DS is usually, but not always, reserved for those with a BMI of greater than 50 and tends to produce the most immediate and sustained weight loss compared to other weight loss procedures—patients could lose from 60-85% of excess body weight.
