Dr Ajay Kumar

Dr Ajay Kumar Houston
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 duodenal switch (DS) combines malabsorptive elements to achieve weight loss. The DS procedure includes a partial gastrectomy, which reduces the stomach along the greater curvature, effectively restricting its capacity while maintaining its normal functionality. This means that part of the stomach is permanently removed. Read More

Duodenal Switch This operation combines removal or exclusion of 2/3rds of the stomach along with a long intestinal bypass which significantly reduces the absorption of fat. The capacity to eat is greater than with the other operations, and the eventual weight loss is the best of all the operations but if fatty foods are overeaten e.g. a hamburger and fries then diarrhoea and foul flatus will result.

Dr Carlos Ferrari Houston
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
