About Duodenal Switch:

Duodenal Switch,  biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD-DS) or gastric reduction duodenal switch (GRDS), is a restrictive and malabsorptive procedure which provides highest possible ‘expected weight-loss’, compared with gastric bypass and gastric sleeve. This is one of the main reasons why this surgery type is reserved for only the highest BMIs.  Studies have  suggested that the average drop in BMI is nearly 35% in 1.5 years.

Duodenal Switch uses two techniques to reduce obesity, malapsorption and restriction. Malabsorption allows calories to go through your system untouched and not be absorbed. The restrictive side, makes a fuller faster allowing the patient to be satisfied with less food. This two step process allows the patient to burn off excess weight at a staggering rate.
