What is Duodenal Switch Procedure?

Category: Surgeries

false

The duodenal switch surgery involves decreasing the size of the stomach and re-routing the food to further down in the small intestine. The smaller stomach will restrict the amount of food taken in, and the new placement of the small intestine prevents the body from absorbing calories and nutrients.
