The Duodenal Switch is a sleeve of the stomach combined with a bypass of the intestines. The procedure is performed laparoscopically for minimal recovery and reduces the amount of food you eat while allowing you to make better use of it.
It works differently than other mainstream weight loss operations in that it blocks 80% of fat-calorie absorption that leads to lasting weight loss for so many.
How It Works
Surgeons create a small stomach pouch shaped like a tube, making the stomach smaller.
The small intestine is then divided into two parts. The lower part is attached to the new, smaller stomach.
The procedure changes the digestive track by not mixing digestive enzymes until far in the digestive track.
This reduces the amount of food you eat and makes better use of the food you do eat.
The Benefits Of D-Switch
Procedure is Laparoscopic, which means it is less invasive and provides a faster recovery.
We don't have to implant a medical device.
Changes the signals sent by your stomach to the rest of your body, including your brain, that control you blood sugar levels, feelings of fullness, and hunger.
