Duodenal Switch This is a complex laparscopic procedure where the stomach size is reduced and the majority of the small bowel is bypassed. Significantly, weight loss over 80% excess body weight is usually achieve and therefore recommended for supermorbidly obese patients. This procedure requires 3.5-4.5 hours to perform laparascopically and is usually reserved for super B.M.I. patients (B.M.I. > 50). Due to the patients size and relative complexity of the procedure, complication rates are higher than in other operations. Patients need to be monitored closely for nutritional deficiencies which usually stabilize after one year. Dr. Jay reserves this operation for super B.M.I. patients and patients who have failed other bariatric procedures. Read More

Duodenal Switch The Biliopancreatic Diversion with Duodenal Switch (BP-DS) is a restrictive and malabsorptive, and metabolic surgery. Therefore, it restricts food intake and reduces calorie absorption. The first part of the operation involves removing a large part of the stomach, leaving behind a smaller stomach that resembles a long tube (gastric sleeve) and re-routing of the small bowels to create a condition where fat is not absorbed. Side effects include multiple bowel movements daily and malabsorptive deficiencies that must be closely monitored postoperatively. It is an effective surgery for patents with diabetes and lipid abnormalities. In the second part of the operation, the small intestine is divided and reconnected farther down the digestive tract. The estimated weight loss for this procedure is 85 to 90% of excess weight. Read More
