Benefits of biliopancreatic diversion/duodenal switch

There are several benefits to be had from this surgery. These are as follows:

  • This procedure guarantees the greatest amount of weight loss as compared to any other obesity procedure. It is also the most durable as well.
  • Dramatic weight loss. You are looking at 70-80% even 90% in some cases. This tends to happen in the first year after the surgery and slows down in the second and subsequent years.
  • Not likely to experience ‘dumping syndrome’ (very rare).
  • You will be able to eat bigger and so more ‘normal’ sized amounts of food than with many of the other procedures such as gastric bypass for example.
  • This procedure can reduce or even cure many obesity-related conditions such as stroke, Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnoea, asthma, arthritis and back pain, liver disease, high blood pressure, raised cholesterol, heart disease and fertility problems.
  • Improved sense of confidence and well being. Psychological health will also improve.

These are all positives which will resolve your excess weight problems especially when combined with a healthy lifestyle.
