Considering that this is a laparoscopic surgery, most patients will be completely recovered within two to three days of bed rest under the supervision of the head surgeon, Dr. Alejandro Lopez. Dr. Lopez has had years of experience working with patients regarding Duodenal Switch surgery.
Benefits of Duodenal Switch Surgery
Duodenal Switch surgery can provide long-term weight loss results. The surgery can improve serious health complications including:
Obstructive sleep apnea
These conditions can be related to weight, and if your weight drops, so does the chance of one of these ailments affecting your health! Other benefits include:
The surgery is often done laparoscopically, which means that the surgeon uses small tools and makes small incisions, along with an endoscope. So there generally won’t be big scars, and recovery time is minimized.
Reduced incidence of dumping syndrome as compared to gastric bypass surgery. Dumping syndrome is a group of symptoms that can occur after surgical removal of portions of the stomach.
It involves a more normal diet that is better tolerated compared to diets required following other types of bariatric surgery.
Since none of the intestine is removed, the malabsorbtive aspect of the surgery can be reversed, if necessary.
Who Qualifies for Duodenal Switch Surgery?
Duodenal Switch Surgery is an excellent option for patients needing to lose a significant amount of weight. A perfect candidate for this surgery has a body mass index (BMI) of 50 or greater.
The reason for this is that the surgery is so excellent at helping patients lose weight that they usually lose up to 70% of their excess weight! This procedure is for someone who wants to make a complete transformation.
Duodenal Switch Surgery can be a great option for patients who have experienced a failed gastric sleeve or gastric band surgery.
Where Should I Undergo Surgery?
While this surgery may sound wonderful, it may simply be too expensive in the United States. Consider having Duodenal Switch Surgery in Mexico where you get the same results but with less expense.
