Duodenal Switch

Duodenal SwitchSince duodenal switch directly affects the metabolism, it leads to more weight loss. It is a good method especially for people whose BMI is above 55kg/m2. This surgery not only limits food intake, but it also reduces absorption of foods. It is an efficient therapeutic method for diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol caused by excessive weight. It is beneficial for patients who consume foods rich in fat as it decreases fat absorption. Although it is one of the obesity surgery methods that ensure the maximum weight loss, it is not a common one due to many peroperative and postoperative complications. Malodorous chronic diarrhea and vitamin and protein deficiencies secondary to decreased fat absorption are common after this surgery.
