Duodenal switch surgery involves two main steps. First, a large portion of the stomach is removed, creating a smaller stomach pouch. This restrictive component limits the amount of food that can be consumed, leading to reduced calorie intake. The second step involves rerouting a significant portion of the small intestine, which reduces the amount of calories and nutrients that the body absorbs. This malabsorptive component further enhances weight loss by decreasing calorie absorption.
Duodenal switch surgery is highly effective in promoting substantial weight loss. Patients can expect to lose a large percentage of their excess body weight within the first year after surgery, and weight loss continues over the following months. This surgery is particularly beneficial for individuals with severe obesity or those who have not achieved significant weight loss with other weight loss procedures.
Beyond weight loss, duodenal switch surgery has shown to lead to the resolution or improvement of obesity-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and high cholesterol levels. The improvement in these health conditions contributes to an overall improvement in the patient’s health and quality of life.
Due to the malabsorptive component of duodenal switch surgery, patients may require nutritional supplementation to ensure they receive adequate vitamins and nutrients. Dr. Sunil Sharma MD and his team provide comprehensive guidance on post-operative nutrition, including appropriate supplementation, to support optimal health.
Duodenal switch surgery offers sustained weight loss results. However, it is essential for patients to adopt a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, to maintain their weight loss success in the long run.
