Duodenal switch

Summary

Duodenal switch

A duodenal switch is a surgical procedure performed on the stomach and parts of the small intestine. Firstly, the stomach is reduced in size by removing a portion of it in order to reduce the amount of food intake possible. The next part is bypassing parts of the small intestine so that food may be absorbed faster. A duodenal switch is a kind of weight loss surgery. It is performed by a skilled specialist surgeon, but dietary changes are also important to help achieve total weight loss.
