Duodenal Switch (DS) is a weight loss surgical procedure which improves upon the standard Biliopancreatic Diversion.
DS leaves a larger portion of the stomach intact, including the pyloric valve that regulates the release of stomach contents into the small intestine. It also keeps a small part of the duodenum in the digestive pathway. The patient must be closely monitored to guard against severe nutritional deficiencies.

Advantages of DS Weight Loss Surgery

  • More "normal" absorption of many nutrients than with BPD, including calcium, iron and vitamin B12.
  • Better eating quality when compared to other WLS procedures.
  • Eliminates or greatly minimizes most negative side effects of the original BPD.
  • Essentially eliminates stomal ulcer and dumping syndrome.

Disadvantages of DS Weight Loss Surgery

  • Greater chance of chronic diarrhea.
  • Significant malabsorptive component.
  • More foul smelling stools and flatus, but less than with the BPD alone.
