Laparoscopic Duodenal Switch

The rearrangement of the small bowel in patients to cause malabsorption of the fat consumed by them is known as laparoscopic duodenal switch.

Diversion of the food stream is caused by small bowel bypass. This makes it harder for the body to absorb the fat and calories from the food as it keeps from mixing the digestive juices with the food. The laparoscopic duodenal switch procedure involves the restriction of the stomach size which is done by removing part of the stomach and fat malabsorption, which speeds up the digestive process and does not allow your body to consume more fat and calories. The laparoscopic duodenal switch is a procedure that helps you to lose weight and have long-term benefits.

How does the Laparoscopic Duodenal Switch surgery work?

The normal process of digestion involves the travelling of food from the stomach to the small intestine. Duodenum is the beginning of the small intestine where the partially digested food from your stomach gets mixed with juices from the liver and the pancreas. Your body absorbs most of the fat and calories from this process.

The laparoscopic duodenal switch surgery involves reduction of the stomach size which is done by removing part of the stomach and rearrangement of the intestine which speeds up the digestive process resulting in less fat and calories consumption by your body. Thus the reduced stomach holds less food making you feel full from a small amount of food and the quick digestion help you consume fewer calories and fat, the duodenal switch surgery can result in significant weight loss and long-term benefits.

What to expect?

What happens during the operation?

Before the surgery begins, you will be either given general or local anaesthesia. Anaesthesia keeps you asleep and comfortable during surgery. A small incision will be made and operating tools will be inserted through them. The intestine will be rearranged and the size of the stomach will be reduced. Once the process is done the incisions will be closed using sutures.

What happens after the surgery?

After laparoscopic duodenal switch surgery, you can have liquids but no solid food as your intestines and stomach will be still weak. Gradually, your diet plan changes from liquid to pureed foods and after that soft foods to firmer foods. A healthy lifestyle must be followed along with a proper diet which will be recommended by your doctor. You’ll have frequent medical checkups to monitor your health after duodenal switch surgery.
