Duodenal Switch

The most effective weight loss surgery for the heaviest patients

First the surgeon removes part of the stomach to create a smaller, tube-shaped stomach pouch to restrict the amount of food you can eat. Then the surgeon bypasses about three-quarters of the small intestine, which reduces the calories that can be absorbed. Most patients lose 60 to 80 percent of their excess body weight over a two-year period.
