Duodenal Switch in Atlanta

A biliopancreatic diversion changes the normal process of digestion by making the stomach smaller.

It allows food to bypass part of the small intestine so that you absorb fewer calories. Because of the risks, this surgery is for people who are more than severely obese, having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 50 of higher, and who haven’t been able to lose weight any other way.

People who have this surgery must take vitamin and mineral supplements for the rest of their lives.

This type of weight loss surgery has its risks, and only a select patient population will meet the criteria for the surgery.

What Makes BPD-DS Surgery Different?

  • The biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch (BPD/DS) treatment has two components
  • The first is similar to the sleeve gastrectomy method. Dr. Aryaie creates a small, tubular pouch by removing part of the stomach.
  • The second portion of treatment is bypassing much of the small intestine, which is part of traditional gastric bypass surgery.
  • The duodenal switch results in a moderately sized stomach pouch and the bypassing of a significant part of the small intestine.
  • These outcomes allow the patient to lose weight without a substantial deviation from their eating habits, compared to what is required by other types of bariatric surgeries.
  • After treatment, the stomach can hold about five to six ounces of food, while other procedures typically allow only a half to one full ounce.
